Welcome to Spring 2022. If the change of season fills you with the urge to learn something new or flex your creative muscles after a long winter, perhaps one of the following five courses will help.
▪️Venus Envy leads a slew of workshops designed to make bedroom playtime even more satisfying. “How to Talk Dirty” promises to help you to ask for what you want in the way you want to say it. Masks and proof of vaccination are required for this in-person workshop on Thursday April 28th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. $25 for adults, $15 for students and seniors. 226 Bank Street.
▪️Over three sessions, Ottawa-based Interior Decorator Erin Rochon’s The fundamentals of Furniture Painting - Beginner Masterclass will teach participants about paint choices, application techniques, and upcycling furniture, and you’ll walk away having completed a small project. Sunday March 27th, Sunday April 3rd, and Sunday April 10th at Square Lemon Artistic Association Unit 14, 2350 Stevenage Drive. $225 + tax.
▪️Create your own pottery sculpture that delivers both in looks and sound. LOAM Clay Studio’s Bells & Mobiles Workshop with Jess Aylsworth allows participants to create an outdoor art piece that will respond to the spring’s soft breezes. Once you’ve created your sculpture, it will be glazed and fired by the pros at the workshop. A maximum of eight places will be sold, at $100 each. Thursday April 17th from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
▪️Learn to sew using fabric that Eco Equitable has saved from landfill. The Level 1 - Beginners Sewing course will teach you how to operate a sewing machine, to read a pattern, to choose the right fabric, and other important information, over eight classes. You’ll make a pair of pyjama pants or a skirt. Choose Wednesday evenings March 30th to May 18th or Saturday mornings April 30th to June 18th. $280 per person. 404 McArthur Avenue, Unit “D”.
▪️Ottawa City Woodshop’s Crate Chair course takes a mere six hours to teach you to create a stylish outdoor lounge chair. This chair is based on a 1934 design that utilized wood salvaged from packing crates (you, on the other hand, will be using pine boards). Friday April 15th from 10:00am to 4:00pm but sign up now - OCW’s courses habitually sell out. $175 per participant. 250 City Centre Ave, Unit 234.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
