Exciting New Workshops!!

DIY Paperlicious Flowers - Wed. Feb22nd - 6:30-8:30pm - $50

At The Wedding Co. we believe that taking the time to hand make something for your wedding or shower makes the celebration even more personal and memorable. In fact the final product isn’t what you will love most about getting crafty, it is the time you take to make it.

So spend an evening with The Wedding Co. and The Paper Place and learn how to make a beautiful bouquet made out of something as simple and inexpensive as tissue paper.

Cherri Moote's Make Your Own Rubber Stamps - Wed. Feb28th - 6:30-8:30pm - $50

With a sharp blade and a steady hand, you can create your own rubber stamps! In order to maximize your success with this craft we will look at many examples of successful hand carved stamps and at a number of good sources for simple, clear designs. You will learn about the different tools you can use for carving and the different types of materials that can be used to make stamps. Each student will have the opportunity to make one stamp and a greeting card in class.

Nick Rubi's Wet Media on Washi - Tues. Mar.6th - 6:30-8:30pm - $45

Wet Media on Washi provides an opportunity to experiment with watercolour, ink, and acrylic media on a diverse selection of Japanese handmade paper. Within this loosely formatted workshop, expose yourself to the textures, surfaces, and levels of absorbency that make Washi so unique! Moisture and colour bring handmade paper to life, creating artwork that can stand alone or be further manipulated into paper sculpture!

For paper lovers and painters alike, Wet Media on Washi will be a playful way to cross the traditional boundaries of art making. All skill levels are welcome!

Maggie Krawczyk's Kokeshi Dolls - Tues. Mar.13th - 6:30-8:30pm - $45

Come and learn the art of creating Japanese Kokeshi Dolls!

Kokeshi are wooden dolls made with simple painted facial features and elaborate kimonos.
One doesn’t have to be an artist to create these little works of art, as you can use printed chiyogami paper supplied by The Paper Place.

All materials will be provided for this class, and at the end, you will go home with your own, unique kokeshi doll!

Corinna vanGerwen's Cookie Exchange - Wed. Mar. 21st - 6:30-8:30pm - $45

Combat the mid-winter blues with a social evening of sharing and wrapping sweets — because cookie exchanges shouldn’t be limited to the holidays! Learn how to box, bag and wrap baked goods in pretty packages for giving as gifts and favours. We’ll show you several techniques — including how to make your own colourful twist ties — then you’ll have a chance to test out your creativity by experimenting with our treasure trove of materials to package your own cookies. Students are asked to bring a batch or two of cookies for wrapping.

Heather Marchand's Fuwa Fuwa - Japanese Paper Clay Molding - Wed. Mar. 28th - 6:30-8:30pm - $45

Fuwa Fuwa is Japanese for “soft like a cloud”, a description that perfectly suits this unusual Japanese paper-based modeling material. This malleable clay solidifies with exposure to air, becoming as light as a feather in the process. The endless possibilities of Fuwa Fuwa accommodate your artistic tastes, no matter your skill level! Join us for a fun and exploratory evening with paper clay. You will learn techniques for shaping and sculpting as well as colouring, dying and finishing your pieces. Your end products will make perfect embellishments, gifts and tiny works of art!
