This year we’re incredibly excited to be a part of Found Festival: a multi-platform arts event being held at the Abbotsford Convent from May 17th to 25th. Featuring the works of over 100 artists, performers, comedians, musicians, film screenings and speakers, the 9 day festival addresses the history of the site as a prison for “lost and wayward” women. We’ll be running four classes at the convent as part of the festival: two of our old favourites, and two brand new.
- A Fresh Look at Everyday Feminism with Kate
- More than Muses – A History of Women Making Art with Sophia
- Loosen up Sketchy!, a fun introduction to drawing with Erin
- and finally, the ever popular Braiding: It’s As Easy As 1,2,3 with Theresa
Even if you don’t come to our classes, you should make your way down to the convent to check out other parts of the festival. And the convent buildings are incredible, sitting in the middle of beautiful gardens; perfect for a relaxing afternoon or evening with friends! You can even grab a meal at Lentil as Anything.
