UPCOMING CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
We dyed wool using avocados and onion skins! The class was a blast and I learned so much. Now, I have two lovely skeins of naturally dyed wool to knit with. It was quite wonderful.
My favourite part was learning a new medium to work in, and the instructor was excellent, fun and easy to understand, made everyone comfortable, and was encouraging.
My favourite part was spending quality time with my daughter. The instructor was a wonderful (patient, supportive, and gave lots of positive reinforcement).
There was SO much information to learn, but the teacher was fantastic in making sure nobody got lost and the class was timed out wonderfully.
My favourite part was learning a new craft in a beautiful and supportive environment while sipping a perfect americano.
Just really loved the whole class! It can be intimidating to figure out where to start with a new craft on your own, so having a friendly guide to talk to and learn some basics from was wonderful. I’m inspired to learn more on my own now.
My daughter had a blast this week! She learned a lot of nice new techniques from the very capable and talented instructors. She’s looking forward to seeing the final pieces of pottery from out of the kiln. She especially loved the spinning/turning of the clay.
I really enjoyed learning to work with the clay on the wheel. It was challenging and frustrating but fun and very satisfying when I was able to produce several pieces of pottery that I will use!
Warm, friendly knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher.
Gaining new knowledge and a new skill from a well-informed instructor. The instructor was a fountain of knowledge and made it relaxing and enjoyable!
It was so amazing not only to learn a new skill but to learn about the history and process behind it!
The entire experience was amazing—one of the best classes I have taken at GB Arts!
The instructor was so knowledgeable, positive, and supportive. It was nice to come away with something I was happy with.
My favourite part of the experience was connecting with others at the centre about First Nations crafts.
The instructor was really good. I learned stained glass from a pro, but the instructor taught me new tricks that I didn’t know, so I really liked that. Plus she was very patient with those of us that had never done any kind of mosaic work.
It was my first class at the art centre and the instructor made the whole experience a delight. They were knowledgeable and their instruction was clear and instilled confidence. I’m looking forward to exploring more classes.
The instructor sat with each person individually if needed and was very helpful, ensuring each person learned how to use the serger they brought.
The facility is fabulous—lots of room to work and move around—washrooms are handy. I loved being able to have a coffee and a snack !! The class was educational and fun!!
I have had very little experience with printmaking and this was an easy approach with very good results. The reveal of the print was thrilling each time.
I enjoyed being at the centre and meeting new people. It is a wonderful facility.
I loved how organized the session was and the easy-to-understand the instructions. It was also great to meet new people and then come home with the planter.
It was just an overall fun experience. All the plant vendors made the space lovely. Getting my hands dirty in the class was fun. Seeing so many people out having fun was great. Instructor was pleasant and fun.
Learned a new skill in a nurturing environment… Helpful hints given that can apply to other sewing projects. So enjoyable, lots of laughs too!
Felt welcomed and included by the instructor and other students. It was very fun!
The whole session was very informative and engaging. The instructor was extremely approachable and offered many opportunities for Q and A.
Instructor was great; informative, friendly, and fun. Perfect size class, 5 people. The instructor had time to assist each student, when needed. Was a productive, but relaxed class.. Enjoyable!
We came to the class as a group of four and all of us had a marvellous time. The space was lovely, our instructor was fabulous, and we all left feeling very satisfied with our projects and our new set of skills.
Loved my instructor and classmates. A very relaxed and creative atmosphere.
My favourite part was having a space, with an instructor, to do art with my kid. And more than just a craft kit that they could do at home!
Extremely kind, knowledgeable instructor—accommodating for individuals with all skills and abilities. A very comfortable setup, with adequate lighting, tools, and the coffee was a bonus! I appreciate the sense of community.
The teacher was very organized and kept the class moving through stages of making the ring very efficiently… I would like to take more classes from her.
The instructor was very organized and took time with each of us and gave excellent input on our work.
I am grateful for The Georgian Bay Centre for the Arts to provide this experience and will share with others.
The whole experience was great, from the music in the background, to the instructor leading the class.
Amazed at the whole surrounding atmosphere. Loved seeing all the makers enjoying themselves learning. Truly an amazing space to be in.
Instructor was very informative and engaging, and very responsive to questions. They provided lots of information (including recommendations of resource materials) and combined info with a hands-on experience… Many thanks!
My favourite part was the openness of the experience and the friendliness of the instructor. It was comforting to be able to complete the project without prior experience necessary.
My favourite part was using the different spinning wheels and learning their history as well as their usage.
