Malahat Farm offers art space

Every Tuesday the farm is open to artists to explore and socialize

Opportunity to explore art

The Art Space at Malahat Farm is open Tuesday afternoons 1 to 3 p.m. (or on other times by arrangement).

This is art time, social time, play time, learning time – whatever you want to make it. It’s open to anyone, whether you have done art all your life or not at all but would like to. You can work on your own projects with your own materials, or try out the art supplies that we have collected in the space.

There is a kettle for tea, tables to work on, chairs, power and lots of paints, paper, beads, leather, soapstone and oddments for mosaic or collage. If you have spare art supplies to share, bring them along.

Inspiration, fun, or just company in what is often a solitary occupation, come on down and have fun, share your skills, pick up new ones, or just grab a cup of tea and check the space out.

Tuesdays, 1 to 3 p.m. Malahat Farm, 2675 Anderson Road, about 12 km west of Sooke, just east of Muir Creek. We’ll be in the big garage to the left as you come up the drive.

For more info, e-mail kwoods@pacificcoast.net, or vero@malahatfarm.com or call 642-0393 or 642-6868.
