Leading up to the New Year, and holiday season, December seems to be the month that I take to reflect both on the year that’s passed and the one to come. So in the spirit of looking forward to 2017, it seems like a good time to announce that the studio will be moving on January 1st 2017 to the King Edward Creative Hub & Arts Incubator.
I am excited about being a part of this new creative community and I will be expanding my studio practice at the same time to provide workshops focused on surface design and textile discovery. So for those of you who are curious about my process and would perhaps like to give it a try please join my new workshops mailing list here.
Classes will be starting in the new year and early registration opens soon! Not only will you be able to explore the process of silkscreen printing but I will also be hosting several special guest artists to explore a wider variety of surface design methods. Join us for an introduction to block printing, natural dyeing, indigo dyeing, quilting and more! Stay tuned…

About cSPACE King Edward
The cSPACE King Edward project is the transformation of a vacant 100 year-old school and 3 acre site in Marda Loop into an innovation hub for the cultural and creative sector. At the heart of the development is the repurposing of a designated heritage building and public space into a multi-disciplinary arts, culture and community facility. The LEED Gold Certified project will provide 41,000 s.f. of sustainable creation, production, exhibition, rehearsal and performance space in Phase I. Phase II provides 6,500 s.f. of theatre, flexible co-working office and shared meeting spaces. Collectively, these facilities will provide a diversity of spaces for non-profits, artists and cultural entrepreneurs to amplify their missions, practices and enterprises. Construction on Phase I began in April 2015 and full project completion is anticipated for June 2017.
