Makers Circle is a new series sponsored by CSAG that started in September, 2019 as an opportunity for artists, artisans and crafters to meet on bi-weekly afternoons at Shawnigan Lake Community Centre. Makers Circle is an opportunity for members to spend creative time with like-minded ‘makers’ and work on portable projects in an atmosphere of support and sharing.
Our Makers are amazing, with interests and talents in jewelry making, glass cutting, watercolour and acrylic painting, rug hooking, clothing design and all manner of fabric art. Our Makers have commented that Makers Circle was just what they needed and we have had a steady increase in participants monthly.
With our ever increasing numbers and by request, January will bring an evening Makers Circle to Shawnigan Lake Community Centre for those creative folks who can’t make the daytime group. As a pilot program, youth 14 years and older will be invited to participate in Makers Group but must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or responsible adult.
Our members are hoping to plan a Makers Show and Sale in the spring of 2020. Please check Cowichan South Arts Guild Facebook page and/or our website events calendar to keep updated with current info in regards to Makers Circle.
