Greetings Bowen Island! We have been very busy at The Burrow this holiday season, booking artists and workshops to inspire you and get you in the festive spirit! We have some amazing instructors, from on-island as well as the mainland, coming to share their knowledge and inspire you!
Kelly Miller is the owner of Bowen Island Tattoo Shop, and is instructing a Wine & Paint night, featuring a whimsical forest scene, this Friday, November 18, from 7 to 9 pm.
We also have another local instructor, Andrea Stevenson, from Flora Shamana Blooms, offering two amazing workshops.
The first, is a dried floral arranging class this Sunday, November 20, that will incorporate many of the beautiful, rare, and hard to grow flowers that she cultivates on her small flower farm on Bowen. Create a beautiful piece that will remind you of summer and bring colour into your home over these winter days ahead.
The second workshop Andrea is offering is on December 11, from 1 to 2:30 pm, to create a beautiful holiday door swag using fresh tree cuttings, and again, delicate dried flowers from her farm. Create a beautiful festive piece to adorn your front door!
After an unexpected turn of events, Debbie Hungle’s glass workshops were re-scheduled to next weekend, Sunday, November 27. The class offerings have also slightly changed. Glass-fused ornament making is now being offered as a family workshop! Yes! All participants must register and be a minimum of 5 years old. Parent & tot, grandparents and grandkids, or child drop off are all welcome! This will be a fun event! Only 10 spots remaining! (As of Nov. 16*)
Debbie is also offering an adult/mature youth glass mosaic class later in the afternoon! Participants may choose from stencils or create their own masterpiece. Along with over 40 years experience, Debbie also brings all the tools and materials needed!
November 25 is also our third Make & Munch youth event. Join us for some pizza, pottery and pop! Clay Christmas trees and ornaments are a few things on the agenda!
On November 26, I’ll be offering a Sip & Ceramics workshop on beautiful ornamental clay trees and ornaments! This workshop is full, please inquire about future dates!
We are also very lucky to have Jean Bradbury back in the studio after a long, successful summer of painting amazing murals all over the continent!
Jean will be leading a Sip & Paint night on Friday, December 2, based on her recent hikes into the wild of Bowen and the knowledge to forage for Bowen’s own wild mushrooms!
