Making Your Own Sketchbook Or Journal

Handmade Sketchbooks Poster

Joel & Tati are “artivists” (artist + activists) who believe that certain changes do not come from leaders, but surface from collaboration, dialogue and social exchange. For some years the duo have travelled with a project called Permact (www.facebook.com/Permact) offering workshops like this so as to give the opportunity for people to rethink about consumerism and waste.

In this workshop participants will use a variety of repurposed and recycled materials to make their own sketchbook or journal.

For more information & to register, visit the workshop page here, http://hmsnonesuch.com/workshops-seminars-conferences/learn/graphic-diary-workshop/ or send us an email, or stop in at Main & Station, 168 Main Street (Parrsboro’s old Post Office).

Margie is back

This Friday afternoon Margie of Mag’s Beehive will be joining us at Main & Station around 1pm.  Stop by for coffee and cake and check out her array of essential oils and beeswax creams, lip balms and candles. She makes the oils from local products such as balsam, lavender and roses. Because it smells like a forest my favourite is the cracked skin body balm (and yes, it also feels great!)

Margie also sells yummy honey.
