Events & Courses


July 15, 2020 at 11 am ET live on Facebook. I will post the recording later for those that cannot watch it live.


Due to the COVID-19 situation, all workshops will be delivered virtually until further notice. It is important to make room for art and to connect with others. Depending on the developments, I might an offer outside workshop at the end of August. I will keep you updated.

To register for any of the events, please click on the event title or in case of different times on the time slot to be directly transferred to the registrations page. All times are stated in the Eastern Time.

Are you looking to do something to break up the Netflix days? Now is a great time to learn a new language. Combining language instruction with art projects, you will have lots of fun learning the German language, which is not as hard to learn as many believe.

Felted SunflowerSunflower Felting Workshop: Sunday, August 23 and August 30, 2020, 11 am – 12:30 pm, $40/person

We will create a three-dimensional sunflower that can be pinned to a nice summer hat or used as a decoration.

The materials can be ordered for example at www.fibregarden.ca or www.amazon.ca:

  • Wool rovings in different shades of yellow and brown, about 25 g for one flower
  • Felting needles (2 – 3 in case you break one, if possible one fine, one medium)
  • one foam pad or an old cushion
  • beads, brown thread and needle (optional)

If you have never felted before, getting a starter kit will provide you with everything you need. You can buy kits at both Amazon and the Fibre Garden. As we are creating colourful flowers, it does not matter that you will not have a lot of fibre in a specific colour.

If you are looking for a nice variety of colours, I would recommend the following product: https://www.fibregarden.ca/product/corriedale-bag-of-nests-50-colours-500g/ which offers you 10g of each colour.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at info@KerstinPeters.ca if you have any questions.

Courses run through the City of Ottawa

There is no update on the start of new courses. I will inform you as soon as I receive any information.

Mixed Media Mixing It

Your child’s creative imagination will run wild in this dynamic and creative class. Kids will explore different mediums like ink, pencil and paint; and artistic styles and techniques like drawing, painting, collage, three-dimensional work and more.



Cartooning and Comics

A young and free imagination can give cartoons personality – so watch characters and comic strips come to life! Draw and animate characters through studying figures, facial expressions, actions, perspective and using specialized illustration techniques.




“Kerstin Peters’s workshops have helped me to become very creative.  Kerstin is a multi-talented artist who loves art and people.   In my case, she helped me see my potential, become more confident and daring as I learned and experimented.  That is an amazing gift!  Expressing myself through art (painting, collage, felting, mixed media) and enjoying art generally now enriches my daily life.”
Francine C. (young retiree)


“I love Kerstin’s artworks. I have attended a few of her short workshops & love her versatility in so many different mediums. I have found a couple of things I really enjoy.”
Cynthia W.
