Events & Courses

 

Due to the COVID-19 situation in Ottawa, all workshops until the end of June will be delivered virtually. It is important to make room for art in this stressful time. We have to make sure that we do not isolate ourselves completely from each other. Zoom, Skype, Facebook and not to forget our phones offer ways to keep in contact. Please make sure to order the materials early enough as many suppliers have longer delivery times at the moment.

For reviews of my services and products, please scroll to the end of the page. Thank you.

We will all work on our own creative projects from the comfort of our homes. We will spend time together chatting, sipping a hot or cold beverage and crafting. I love bringing people together to have fun and to connect. This is the time to connect  – even when we are isolating ourselves in our homes. After you have registered, I will send you the link for the meeting. Please register at least 30 minutes before the event.

 

 

 

Spring Flower Felting Workshop, $30/person

Monday, June 8 and 15, 2020, 11 am – 12:30 pm

We will create three-dimensional spring flowers that can either be realistic or your invented species. The course will be delivered through the Zoom platform.

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

  • Wool rovings of your choice, about 20g 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

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

The spring session has been cancelled COVID-19. New courses will be offered in September. I will post details about the classes as soon as the information will be available.

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.

 

 

Reviews:

“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.”
