Amy Dugas, Campbell River artist, is set to teach her third summer basket weaving workshop on Aug. 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This class will build upon techniques already learned, while you are free to create your own unique woven sculpture and explore different woven shapes, alongside the traditional basket. The focus will be on developing your weaving techniques around varied materials to create beautiful, organic woven sculptures.
This class is designed for those who have been introduced to the medium and tools and are seeking continued learning and practicing. Skill development will be the focus. These classes are ideal to be taken repeatedly for continued practice.

NEXT TEA ON THE TERRACE
Our next Tea on the Terrace happens Thursday July 25, when we will be serving our High Tea with two sweets and two savories, served on a tired plater.
Join us under the beautiful canopy of trees and listen to some classical, jazz, and easy listening presented by Dennis Olsen.
These teas are a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, but are also a main fundraiser for the Community Arts Council. So please buy your tickets today to help with much needed funds that off-set the costs of future programs and maintenance for the grounds and gardens at the Rollin Art Centre.
Check out our Facebook page for a complete list of musical guests for the summer. Tickets are only $20 for this tea.
