How could I say no to this adorable poster for The Little Owl Children's Fair ??!!
Emmy MacMillan, has run the Design Owl Fair for the past few years and this is the first time she has put together this one dedicated to little ones. Local crafters "big & small' are selling their handmade products and I will be teaming up with Jen Paquet of Feather & Bone Photography to do a Book Making Demo for kids/teens… so come down & support your local crafters! There are also other demos going on throughout the day. We're up at 12:30pm !!
Here's a sneak peek at our demo ->
For our demo, we'll have the kids sew a simple pamphlet stitch book that they can turn into a photo album or journal… and those colourful covers were made by Jen & I, using the ancient technique of Paper Marbling.
MORE KIDS PROGRAMS: 'PD' or 'Pre-Digital' Days
If you are not able to make it down on Saturday >>> Check out our PD or 'Pre-Digital' Class on Paper Marbling. Jen and I will be running the workshop Friday May-16 (the last PD Day of the year!!) The AM session is for 8-12 years old and the PM class for 13-16 years. Everyone will be able to try their hand at paper marbling and then just like the demo, bookmaking!
* Also watch out for our Kids Summer Program Schedule to be announced VERY soon !!!
As in the past, our classes for kids/teens focus on analogue technology; from toy cameras to printmaking - you'll kids will love working with their hands to make books, processing film even trying out the etching press !! The children's programs are especially important to me, as I see first hand how my daughter thrives from working alongside her parents and participating with other adults at the studio. Creating Art allows for kids to practice visualization, problem solving skills and they get to feel the pride that comes from completing a task with their own hands. Plus you usually get to get messy along the way!!
Let us know if you are interested in learning more about -> NOTIFY ME !
* the PD Day: "Paper Marbling + Book Making Workshop is already open for registration!
