Every other Monday this winter at Arabella we're be teaming up with local artists and creatives to bring you some fun hands-on workshops where you can learn a new skill. 

Our January 22nd workshop is Papermaking and Plant Experimentation with Sid!

Sid is a queer non-binary trans interdisciplinary artist who loves textiles, cyberpunk, and snails. They work as the Community Coordinator for OSHWA, as well as Summit Fellowship Chair during OHS planning season. They are also co-chair of Dinacon and a freelance journalist with bylines in CBC, This Magazine, and Broken Pencil Magazine. They are a passionate arts educator and zinester. They are probably in the middle of too many projects right now.

You can see more of their work on instagram or sidneydrmay.com

In this workshop we'll chat about paper, where it comes from, how we rely on it, ways we can think about it, and experimenting with papermaking in your life utilizing plants and other natural items.
Somethings you'll learn:
  • everything you didn't know about paper
  • breaking down plant matter/old paper 
  • making your own paper from recycled materials
  • experimenting with inclusions
  • what you can do with paper
  • different techniques & more!
 

Cost for the workshop is $25 and includes a 5oz draught pour (or a non-alc option) and supplies. There are only 15 spots available, so be sure to reserve yours soon so you don't miss out!  

 

Please note the workshops will be taking place in our mezzanine that is up a switchback set of stairs. Additionally, this workshop is a mask preferred workshop.
