Saturday, June 24, I am pleased to be teaching a one-day workshop with the fabulous Meta4 Gallery in Port      Perry. They feature beautiful fine arts and crafts by Ontario artists and artisans, and are a hub for art education and community involvement. I'm really looking forward to working with these enthusiastic people.

Saturday, July 15, 
 Paper Engineering: Pop-Up Workshop at Haliburton School of Art and Design - a full day       workshop. See the PDF file for HSAD Summer programs here.

Artful PopUp Workshops are suitable for all skill levels. I work closely with my students to ensure a successful outcome for everyone! The emphasis is on learning Paper Engineering techniques that can be adapted to your artistic vision. We use painted and decorative papers, decorative punches and other embellishments to bring your pieces to life. If you've taken one of my workshops before, you'll know that I'm flexible in my approach and open to requests. If you like working with paper (origami, making books, collage, scrapbooking) you'll love making your own Pop Up pieces.

Simple structures can create beautiful abstract designs. Using contrasting colours on the front and back of the paper can give you lovely effects.
