Raise your glass to a creative night out! Inspired by a lively discussion and tour of The Orchids create your own mixed media artwork using the orchid plant as a starting point. We will paint, pastel, draw and experiment with photo transfers and collage on panels.

Artist and educator Yvonne Vander Kooi will share techniques and approaches to image making that will surprise and delight. Create an artwork to take home, have fun and catch up with friends—you don't have
to be an artist to be creative.

Stz'uminus Elder, Qwatxwamaat (Pearl Harris) offers a full day of cedar bark weaving and teachings around this respected and ancient craft. Create your own small cedar basket to take home, and participate in the beginning of our collaborative work "la bala sgan" (sm'algayx meaning "the cedar mat is spread out"). This cedar mat project will be completed over time and activated at special gatherings at the Nanaimo Art Gallery. No previous weaving knowledge required!
