The Handwork Studio at 100 mile finds

The handwork studio is run by Kathie Young. She offers felting, drawing, and watercolor painting for adults and children. Kathie really celebrates the process that it takes to create a piece as much as she values the actual product that is created. "...artistic activity is a necessary part of human development and pedagogical essential." She speaks of the process having less to do with inspiration and innate talent and more to do with the drive to understand, to seek solutions and to think creatively.

Kathie is offering a "Felt Gnome Workshop on Toronto's Harbourfront" from 12-4pm on Sunday October 17 or November 21st. it's $120 and it includes materials. I know Susan has a, not so secret, love of garden gnomes, this creation could live indoors!
What a great gift a class would be for a child who is struggling socially, or academically, or for an adult going through a rough patch at work or dealing with grieve...
