Make your own faerie at TOSH in Qualicum Beach

The Old School House arts centre plays host to exciting new program

An enchanting class, complete with all the magic and wonder of faeries, is being offered at The Old School House arts centre (TOSH), starting on July 9.

The week-long Faerie Making Class, was headed by Tammie Hunter last year and her daughters Sara and Victoria.

Now Tammie has handed the responsibility over to both of the girls.

The pair participated the class and volunteered in it for many years when it was run by artist Vivien Frow.

“It’s a really fun thing to do,” agreed Sara. “You set your mind to it, start doing it, and you can make tons of little faeries.”

Victoria said the different kinds of faeries that can be made are endless including hair-tie faeries, faerie doorways, twist tie faeries and cloth doll faeries.

The sisters are both very crafty, thanks to their mother Tammie they said.

Faerie making is especially fun, Sara said, because of all the colours and materials you can choose from.

Some of the supplies include pipe cleaners, artificial flowers, hair bands, glitter glue, sequins, ribbon and more. The dolls can also be painted a variety of colours.

The classes are designed for those six aged and up and run from July 9 to July 13 at TOSH from 9:30 a.m. to noon daily. The cost  is $75 and $20 for supplies. To book call TOSH at 250-752-6133.
