Malahat Farm opens venue for artists to work, learn and sell

Malahat Farm opens space for artists and workshops

Last November Kate Woods and I were talking about the darkness of winter. To combat the gloom of this cold season, we decided to get going on a project together. We have turned a space that we have here at Malahat Farm into a small gallery and a workshop.

 

A year later we offer a free community art space. (The only cost is a donation to help cover heating cost.)

We have gathered together art materials and tools and appreciate donations or loans of the same.  In summer we open the big doors and work outside as well. People drop by, do their own work, group projects, or just have a cup of tea and chat.

Come and visit us in the big garage to the left as you come up the drive.

Everyone is welcome. The Malahat Farm is located at 2675 Anderson Road up the hill from Tugwell Creek.

For more information contact:  kwoods@pacificcoast.net  call 642-0393, or  Veronica Dimenbt at: vero@malahatfarm.com  or call 642-6868.

 

Open Tuesdays – Malahat Art Space open 1 – 3  p.m.

Free time for art

Time to do art and crafts together, learn from each other and have fun. We have tools for many activities and books on carving, design, kid projects, origami, rock painting.
