The Master List of our workshop and free program offerings for 2019
Most programming takes place in Vancouver, with some field trips and exceptions to accommodate large groups. Our usual haunts:
– MacLean Park Fieldhouse, 710 Keefer St. @ Heatley, Strathcona
– Trillium North Park,  Malkin @ Thornton in Strathcona (Official Trillium Park address 600 National Avenue, but we’re on the north side of the park at the mural-painted shipping containers)
– Means of Production Garden, E 6th Ave & St Catherines St, Mount Pleasant

This Autumn:

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 I 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, I hope these autumn 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.
