Artists Round Table

The Artists Round Table which meets on the first Tuesday of every month, year round, will be at Cathie Hamilton’s studio at NGB Studios on December 3rd 11am.

Our December get together will include  hot cider and some of Cathie’s famous cookies and a special treat….an encaustic workshop to follow!

The session will be in the afternoon following the artist’s roundtable and run until 4pm.
It will be with the iron and stylus – a much easier setup and lots of fun.  I have the encaustic tools and colour blocks to work with as well as the sealed card for easy painting 

Cathie will do a demo and though she is not charging a fee, a donation for materials would be welcome.

It’s a lot of fun.

Started years ago by Lindsay Fair the ART meets to discuss the business of operating as an artist/artisan, to exchange ideas, problem solve and just generally connect. Every once in a while we will have a speaker to talk to us about banking, taking credit cards at shows, taking art across the border, etc. Meeting in each others homes and studios gives us an opportunity to see how each of us works, our ‘back office’ and even works in progress. There is no membership fee, it’s casual and runs about an hour over coffee and cookies.
