Kids bring their own picnic lunch and instructors will supervise them, do various art and craft projects or explore Granville Island with them. To book simply select the Arts Lunch from the drop down menu after putting your class in the shopping basket. 

This is truly the loveliest class imaginable in our beautiful studio that explores the world of natural dyes and introduces our young creatives to the art of hand stitching by sewing their very own bear - or otherworldly 'pal.'




Explore the colourful world hidden so magically in plants all around us including pomegranate, marigold, indigo and even cochineal (GROUND BUGS!) The chromatic delight is endless as we discover how colour is held in plant matter and transfer organic pigments to a natural, eco fibre tote that each child will get to take home.


Sketch your very own little bear or friend and bring it to life as you learn to hand stitch, exploring simple embroidery techniques for sweet embellishments.

Creative a funky 'tag' for your little friend's name or logo as well! Pen a tiny book, sharing the story of your new friend.


And finally, play around with organic windfall (feathers, pods, leaves, blossoms) and tickle your fancy with a beautiful foray into cyanotype sun printing.
