During this on-farm workshop, you will be led step by step through this wonderfully spontaneous process, including how to use lavender right in your piece. Each person will leave with their own 4x4 finished work of art; the perfect memento from a beautiful afternoon. All supplies included. No experience necessary!
You will also have the opportunity to learn about growing, harvesting and distilling lavender from Lee Anne who owns Stonewell Lavender Farm. After renovating her 1872 stone farmhouse, she is now busy with starting a lavender product line as well as raising bees!
Afternoon tea and snacks will be served.
Kim Kool owns Edge of Grey Encaustics and is the co-owner of The Hive Encaustic Studio at the nearby Alton Mill Arts Centre. She has been teaching encaustic painting for a number of years across the province and loves all things local, handcrafted, and interesting. For her, encaustic art is a strong catalyst to support community engagement and a powerful way to bring people together through a shared, creative experience. Her own work is greatly inspired by the rural Ontario landscape and often incorporates re-purposed materials, and natural plants and fibres harvested or foraged straight from a local farm, garden, or forest.
