Release your inner artist with this fascinating – and easy – craft!  Join us for a special VNC Paverpol workshop.

Paverpol is a remarkable new sculpture medium from the Netherlands. It’s easy to work with and dries quickly, while still allowing plenty of time to sculpt and mould your design.

In this workshop, you’ll have a chance to make a tabletop sculpture using wire, tin foil, fabric and Paverpol. No experience necessary! Anyone can be an artist – and have fun at the same time. You’ll go home with an original sculpture for your home or outdoor garden.

Check out more examples on the Wired Heart Studio website.

WHEN? Wednesday, November 21, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
WHERE? Home of Lori Jamison in East Van

Cost is $100, which must be paid at time of registration in order to reserve your spot at the table. Fee is payable by cash, cheque, or e-transfer to Geri Colter.

This class is limited to 10 crafters. A minimum of 6 is required to bring the instructor in from Surrey. Details about where to go and what to bring will be provided to participants.
