Open Studio:

The Studio is open Thursday 10-2:00pm, for work, checking out the library or just chatting.


Join us June 12, 2019 in the Rehearsal Hall (beside the studio) for our year end meeting.

There will be plenty of tables and chairs for everyone to sit down and share a potluck meal.  A cold drink will be provided. *Please bring your own plate/cutlery/napkin – let’s see how little garbage we can produce on this occasion.

A brief business meeting (quorum is important) will allow us to receive the yearend financial report and share information about upcoming events.

The Hall will be available for people to start gathering at 5:30 p.m. - bring along any finished items – works in progress – inspirations and idea to explore.

Check Parking restrictions – there may be an event at the Bader Centre on this evening (requires $5 paid parking for the evening)

2018/2019 Guild Challenge - Embellishment



noun: embellishment; plural noun: embellishments

• the action of adding details or features.

Make an article along the theme of “embellishment”.

  • Requires two distinct parts 1. a ground work 2. an embellishment

Piece to be presented at the May 2019 general meeting.

Include a few sentences about the challenge. What was your inspiration for your piece? What did you
find valuable about this challenge? What was difficult? How will what you learned inform your practice
going forward?

The Guild Challenge is held annually; it is announced in September and judged in May. Pieces
submitted should be made within that time period. Judging will happen during the May Annual
General Meeting and prizes will be announced at the meeting. Usually, pieces are simply
dropped off before the meeting begins; information about how to label and submit your article
will be circulated closer to May.
