Fall-ing for art at the Cultural Centre

Expand your love for art this fall at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre

The new lineup of fabulous classes and workshops are sure to make this fall season a bit more fun and whimsical.

From jewellery making and pottery to improv and photography, these classes offered by the Chilliwack Cultural Centre are sure to inspire your creative mind, and turn your fall into something truly special.

For workshops, take a go at crafting your own bracelet with the art of Chainmail, or take Beginner Photography to learn the basics to taking fabulous pictures, or even learn to make your own soap with Melt & Pour Soap. Wire Bookmarks offers an introductory look at wire working lessons, and one can even spend an evening of relaxation with Body, Wine, Jewels! With so many workshops being offered, there’s a class for everyone.

If you are in search of something with more guidance, the instructional classes are a great option. Learn how to create your own beads using a torch and glass rods in the fascinating Glass Beads 1: Intro or enhance your drawing abilities in Drawing Light & Shade. Handbuilding: Clay Characters explores the different ways that clay can be used in handbuilding, while Wheel A La Carte 1: Introduction to the Wheel teaches multiple approaches to centering on the clay wheel.

Want to get your children involved with the arts? Then check out some of the kids’ classes starting this October. Your young ones can enjoy learning to act with the Theatre Peeps or take a Masterclass with the professional ballet dancers of Ballet Victoria. They will have the opportunity to get their hands dirty with the kid’s clay handbuilding class Magic Mud, learn the art of Digital Photography, or create their very own anime or comic book with Introduction to Anime and Introduction to Comic Book Illustration.

There’s also the open studios — non-instructional sessions that are perfect for anyone short on time with a desire to create, explore, and expand their skills. If you have already completed one of the pottery classes previously, then Clay Open Studio is sure to pique interest, where the handbuilding table, pottery wheels and abundant clay tools are available to work with. Alternatively, if you have already enjoyed one of the centre’s glass/flamework classes and are looking to create on your own, then Glass Open Studios are a great choice. Sharpen your drawing skills with Life Drawing Open Studios featuring both draped and unwrapped models.

Private classes for either small groups or individuals can also be arranged. They’re perfect for birthday parties, girls’ nights out, or getting the hang of that one tricky medium in one-on-one instruction with one of their talented instructors.

Registration for all classes is now available. For more information or to register for a class, visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, call 604-391-SHOW(7469), or stop by the Centre Box Office (9201 Corbould St.).
