The Snow is falling today in Barrie and its time to highlight another maker as we count down to the Holidays; Ashley Green’s The Imagination Studio boasts thoughtful, creative opportunities for Parents and littles alike. Read on about her studio and holiday gift certificate options:
Ashley Green is the creative director and owner of imagination studio. A child of the arts she fell in love with painting, drawing and creating at an early age. She is endlessly inspired by the imagination and creativity of children. Ashley studied Studio Art at the University of Guelph and went on to teach children of all ages across Canada. She has taught in over twenty-seven Indigenous communities spanning from British Columbia to Nunavut. Returning to The Blue Mountains as young mother she saw a need for an art space where children can create, explore and express themselves authentically. She dreamed up The Imagination Studio and is committed to providing her community with unique opportunities and an inviting space for imaginations to flourish. Ashley has written, illustrated and published two children’s books: Lady Sky and The Emerald Lake.

SNOW GLOBES WORKSHOP
For eons I have been dreaming of teaching a DIY Snow Globes Workshop for kids. There is something so mystifying about the glass bubble, the snowy liquid and the little scene inside. I have always loved winter and am so excited to share this one-of-a-kind workshop with you and your loved ones. Join us as we create a little world of winter together.
POTTERY FOR KIDS WITH GUEST CAROL HAHN
Parents get ready! Introducing our first ever pottery class for kids! Local talent and professional potter Carol Hahn has been a ceramics artist for almost 50 years! Join us as we transform the studio into a clay makers DREAM. This two part workshop consists of an intro class where participants will create two pieces of pottery: one with Carol on the wheel and one free form. After the clay hardens, Carol will whisk away the artwork to her studio where she will fire the clay. The second workshop will be loaded with fun as participants will draw, paint and glaze their pottery. Spaces are limited.
