Magnolia Art Studio

Private workshops? 

Yes, I can facilitate small groups at Magnolia Art Studio. Please contact me.  

Collage workshops are on hold  - stay safe.

Cost:  $30 per person per session, includes materials.

This workshop offers you a chance to try your hand at collage OR to continue on with an existing project.  
    • Each participant will be provided with a package of materials including a 5x7” frame.  A variety of materials from my stash will also be available for you to use.
    • One idea is to create a collage that celebrates someone that inspires you.   Bring an image (passport size)  to incorporate into your work.

You can bring along bits and pieces of collage stuff from home... lace, paper, stamps, maps, magazines, feathers, stencils, fabric, poems, photos, what ever manner of flattish objects strike your fancy.  

Wednesdays 9am - noon.  Prior booking is mandatory.

Where:  Norseman Room at the BC Aviation Museum, North Saanich. 
(This is a lovely large, airy, and bright meeting room which will easily accommodate physical distancing).  

If you or someone you know would like to join me, or if you have any questions please don't hesitate to email.

Having fun with Alcohol Inks

Cost:  $50 per person, includes starter kit of tools to take home. 

I will demonstrate several techniques and then participants will experiment themselves.

Each participant will receive: 

  • starter tool kit, with gloves

  • various papers

  • two blank cards & envelopes to display two of your best pieces

By request!   Stay tuned for the next Collage Substrate workshop - TBA


A number of 'stations' allow you to try out various mediums, and make your own collage substrates.

  • burning paper

  • soy wax (this makes tissue paper and Japanese papers translucent)

  • mark making with water based inks and acrylics

I will have a variety of paper on hand suitable for the mediums.


The cost is $25 per person. Materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own as well.
