Private Parties

SCHOOLS & corporate

BSA provides art & music classes and/ or workshops for both elementary and secondary schools and businesses. Workshop are designed to enjoy building confidence in self expression through the arts in addition to supporting and enriching curriculum.


Sewing with Japanese Paper

What? Sew paper? Absolutely! Quilters will know that paper can be used when working with fabric to piece precise shapes, but in this workshop the paper alone forms the end result. On this day you will play with a variety of Japanese papers – decorative & plain, thick & thin – and sew "quilts" that can be used for book covers,  cards, small bags, wall art and more. 

Participants can bring their own sewing machine and some regular sewing thread. A wonderful variety of paper will be provided, though we encourage you to bring your own off-cuts, failed prints, drawings or paintings on paper to enrich your mix.
