Christmas Ornament Workshop at Inspire

...the first in a series of Get Your Artistic Groove on workshops

polymer clay penguin ornaments
You've been to the craft fairs, you've seen the ornaments and you'd love to make one but don't know how….come join our two-hour workshop and learn how to make them yourself using polymer clay (lots of colours to choose from).

They make a great gift for your family and friends who are adding special, unique, one-of-a-kind ornaments to their collection.

$45 for two-hour class (includes instruction, materials and completed/baked ornaments to take with you.)

We'll take a 1/2 hour break while they cook and when you come back they'll be ready to pick up.

During the half hour break you have the option to create a gift card to go with it, create another ornament to take and bake or enjoy a hot cup of coffee and sweet treat across the street at Oma's and the coffee shop or head up to the Village Chippery for some yummy fish n chips.

Presented by Lindsey Henderson

Synthesis and clay

I struggled with this exercise from my Creativity, Innovation and Change course. I could see the individual pieces and how they work. I could see the whole. I just couldn't see how to put them together and relate it back to my experience with this course. I've spent all week thinking about this and started to stress about not meeting the deadline (today is Thursday) (fear of failure) I couldn't come up with anything. I had no ideas no visions in my head so IFF wasn't even working for me. But I kept trying to come up with something (tenacity).

Art Camp plan for feedback

As women we tend to take care of everything else around us before we even think about our own needs. But we actually need to take care of ourselves first so we CAN help those around us. Just like on an airplane….if there’s an emergency, we’re told to put on our own oxygen mask first before helping someone else. It may sound selfish but think about it…. If you’re travelling with children and you pass out from lack of oxygen while trying to help them first how can you help them at all?

All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso
