    Kitsch: Craft So Bad That It’s Good
    In Edmonton August 14 to October 30, 2021 and Upcoming May 7- July 23, 2022 in the Alberta Craft Council Gallery at cSpace, Calgary.

    Kitsch: Craft So Bad That It’s Good is a group exhibition of works from Alberta Craft Council members. Creators responded from across the province to kitsch it up with humorous works that and will make you laugh and cringe all at once - crossing lines and breaking rules.

    Craft artists working in all traditional and contemporary craft media were invited to create their interpretations of kitsch craft; Craft that shares a knowing wink with the viewer, craft that wears kitsch on its velour sleeve as a rhinestone badge of honor, craft that’s appeal is found in its bad taste and ironic value.

    Stuck indoors during the covid winter, artists turned to their resourceful natures to design and create objects responding to our strange covid times and using materials that were readily at hand in their covid hideouts! Many of the participating artist created new one of kind objects unlike anything you have seen in the Alberta Craft Council before.

    Kitsch: Craft So Bad That It’s Good subverts the rules around good taste, and crosses the line, making you laugh and cringe all at once! The resulting exhibition is exciting, curious, challenging, eccentric and hilarious!

    Youth and Activism - YWCA Banff

    February 2020 I facilitated a clay workshop with Jenna Boucher, Anti-Violence Counsellor and Educator with YWCA Banff on consent.
    Working with 15 -17 year olds, we explored their ideas of consent using drawn and applied imagery and text on clay tiles and clay extrusions.

    Ceramics: Alternative Strategies with Walter Ostrom, CM and Jordan McDonald, Lunenburg School of the Arts, Summer Workshop, July 10-21, 2017

    "In this intensive two-week workshop, students will be pushed to advance their technical and conceptual understanding of pottery. The course will revolve around projects designed to explore alternative strategies and approaches. Slide lectures and discussions will present unconventional perspectives and insights from ceramics history encompassing contemporary practice. Demonstrations will include bizarre throwing and hand-building techniques, slips and glazes. This course is an opportunity for one-on-one interaction relative to your work and personal development. To provide some respite from the drudging and toiling in the studio, there will be short field trips in the area to view ceramic studios and collections. High octane glaze testing and surface exploration are also a part of this course. Prior clay experience is required."
    Thank you FUSION: the Ontario Clay and Glass Association, for providing me a scholarship to attend this workshop in beautiful Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
