Corn Maze II

I've been really trying to get a move-on in the art-making department lately. Among other things, I just made a second Corn Maze for a juried group show hosted by The Japanese Paper Place centred around drawing on washi.

Unfortunately today was the deadline for submissions for the show, but more info on Drawing on Washi: The Presence of the Void can be found here.

Zine Workshop at Wise Daughters

This Thursday, I'll be facilitating a workshop at local craft space Wise Daughters on zine making. Here are the details...come out and make a zine with me!

Make A Zine!
A Workshop for Beginners
Facilitated by Tara Bursey

Thursday, April 15th. 7-9:30pm

Make a zine! Learn about the colourful and subversive history of underground publications and self-publishing! Have fun! Explore the zine medium and self-publishing by learning the roots of the zine, looking at examples of zines from the past and the present, and discussing local zine resources such as zine libraries, annual zine fairs, and methods of distribution. For the last half of the workshop, attendees will make their own fast-and-furious 8 page mini-zine, and will get advice on format, construction, and production. Materials will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own writing implements and collage materials.

Cost: $25.00
Pre-registration is required. Drop-in or phone to register.

I made these last night at easter dinner. Messed up the recipe through bad guesswork, but they still look quite nice...
