Brrr Spring!- warm up with a little ‘Mama says socialising’.


Story-Art project with seniors

Story-Art project with seniors

I am one of the four artists in a Renfrew-Collingwood (RC) community art/story project called ON THE TABLE.
Renfrew-Collingwood(RC) area seniors share stories that matter to them and contribute a personalised cloth representing their story which is then woven into the group tablecloth. The (RC) area roughly extends from Kingsway/Nanaimo to Boundary up to Broadway so a pretty large catchment.
The focus is to create textile artwork that tell the ‘dinner-time’ stories of the community elders in the form of table coverings.
My four FREE workshops will run on Thursdays in April (4,11,18,25) at 10:30am-12:30pm in the Slocan Field Art House, 2750 E. 29th Ave (in Slocan park next to 29th Ave Skytrain).  Folks can register directly with me at

Mama says: Put A Hat On! and book a home Mad-Hatter-Party (performance and product showing). You can find Mama storytelling at various community events.  Some are open to the public so contact us at for listings as there may be some near YOU.
