About Our Paid Programs:

This feels like an exciting time-  bringing together all of our hard earned skills and materials-  to the design and making of individual projects that can feel useful in our daily lives.

Working with our amazing skill holders we have designed classes to allow a ‘mix and match’ type of personal learning and making within the collective atmosphere that is so much a part of our EartHand way. 

From tanning and felting to button-making and more, we hope these offerings inspire you to learn new skills, practice and honour skills already mastered, and put to good use all those various bits that can be generated in studio sessions. Most classes are materials included, but you will see the leather and stitched felting programs also allow for a materials purchase from the instructor to allow cross over- maybe you really want to learn felting with Amy, then purchase your fish leather for a project with Janey? Whatever combination you come up with, I hope you are inspired to bring your maker-time bits together in an exciting way that leaves you with something to cherish and use or gift to someone with pride.

As with all of our paid programs, revenue generated helps with our general operating for maintaining our two garden sites at Means of Production and Trillium North Park. Participating in our programs supports these beloved community spaces and our local artists that share their knowledge with us. Thanks for your support!
