"Kootenays in Colours"

Artist Statement

Embarking on a journey through the vibrant landscapes of the Kootenays and beyond, I was awash with a spectrum of colour and feeling that beckoned me to capture its essence. The picturesque scenery, from verdant valleys to crystal-clear lakes, offered a canvas unlike any other. This adventure was not just about travel; it was a pilgrimage in search of inspiration for what would become my first art gallery exhibit: Kootenays in Colours.

Meet the wheel is an opportunity to try the wheel for the first time! They strongly suggest this two hour workshop for anyone thinking about taking the intensive later on. This is a great precursor because you'll be able to gauge whether or not wheel throwing is for you! It's often tricker than people expect which is why it's nice to give it a go first with less commitment. 

Cost: $55

Like countless other artistic endeavours, mine began in the summer of 2020, spurred by a need for a hobby during the pandemic. Funny enough, I literally spent time googling “hobbies” online, and candle-making caught my eye. Being an avid candle lover, I thought this would be an easy and fun activity. So off I went to purchase my first ever candle-making kit. Little did I anticipate the complexity behind this pursuit.
