💙I’d be completely happy just dyeing or painting everything blue 💙 it’s my go to 💙 I made a fruit based reduction for my indigo vat and I’m just so pleased with the results!! It’s less toxic for a small studio and a way to use that fruit I buy but forget to eat in time! 😂 . . . . . #indigo #fruitreduction #plantbaseddye #maiwasupply #fibreartist #textileoftheday #naturaldye #yycartist #yyclcl #calgaryartist #albertacraft #contextural ...

Reminding all you stretchy, creative humans that there is NO CREATIVE STRETCH tonight due to the long-weekend Library closure. There is also no session next Monday, October 21, due to the Library being used for the election. We will gather once again on Monday, October 28. Thanks and looking forward to diving back in with you! #funadulting #creativity4everyone #yoga #meditation #playtime #groupgames #singalong #letshavefun #stretchitout #deepbreaths #yyclcl #treaty7 #yycyoga #yycart #yyctheatre ...

“Memory serves as a strong theme present in my work. Examining the separation between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, moments collecting and gathering like capsules which essentially creates a life. Through the process of kiln casting glass, hand sculpting clay and working in print-making, I strive to fabricate pieces that will send a message about us as people, the relationships we have with others, the environment around us, and my place within it.” Multidisciplinary artist amandaparkerdesign is back at NCC Nov 1 + 2! • • • • #newcraftcoalition #glass #design #fineart #nature #yycfinecraft #canadianart #sculpture #citizensofcraft #Fall #yycdesign #yychandmade #madeincanada #fashion #contemporarycraft #yycart #yyc #canadiandesigner #jewelry #yyclife #shoplocalyyc #canadianartist #yycmaker #calgaryculture #yyclcl #buylocalyyc #ncc #ininglewood #inglewoodcalgary ...
