Where & When: at kwartzlab 7-10pm Sunday evenings in June, starting this weekend (June 2nd), hopefully going till the end of the month.
What: If you like crafts, come to our casual drop-in craft meetups in June – think a Stich’n'Bitch but any portable art/craft is welcome! paper, textile, fibre-based, beads, handwork, etc. If you do want to knit/crochet and don’t know how, we’ll have some books for that too.
Members can also consider this Artist in Residence Office Hours, so if you have any questions about how to use the space’s sewing machine or need sewing/textile-based advice on anything feel free to come and talk to me (Heather). I’m also hoping to have tea and coffee available at some point. If you’re too busy preparing for Maker Faire, it’ll be running the Sunday after Maker Faire too! Come join us and unwind from a crazy, but awesome, weekend.
In case you missed the live broadcast of my interview from May 9th on 98.5 CKWR’s Culture Soup program with Jennifer Gough, here it is!
