Well. it seems that our Blog is back in business! Although our Calendar is not yet accessible, most of our other info and links are accessible once more. For now, if you have questions about the calendar, please feel free to email me directly at email@example.com.
Second Portfolio meetings start next week. Please remember that there are no ‘in person classes’ from February 24 until March 4.
Here is a brief summary of what we have been up to since the last post on February 2nd.
We have been making our own compostable seed filled card paper, and creating ‘flower bombs’ of soil and seeds with which to perform random acts of beauty! We have been observing our heritage tulip and daffodil bulbs poke through the soil, and we have prepared the soil and planted perennial wildflowers to attract and feed pollinators. Soon we will be learning how to identify common plants found in the Vancouver area and how to safely forage for edible leaves and shoots. We have been creating interesting vessels from papier mache. I have been delighted with the creative exploration and impressed with the cooperative end of day clean up! If you haven’t already done so, please send along an ”Art Smock” (an apron or oversized shirt) to help keeps clothes clean during messy mucky projects.
Thank you to everyone who shared treats and sent contributions to the Friendship Fruit Salad we enjoyed together this week as well.
As the weather warms up we expect to spend even more time out of doors.
Our waitlist for next year is now open! Please spread the word.
