The Eastside Culture Crawl is offering a few workshops related to professional development for their participating artists. On Tuesday September 23rd I will be teaching the workshop, Instagram for Artists.


Instagram is a mobile-based photo sharing app with 100 million active users, and the favourite Social Media tool for creative people. Rachael Ashe will demonstrate the potential of Instagram as a means for showcasing artwork, sharing process, and engaging a local and international online audience. The workshop will include a thorough exploration of Instagram functionality, how to use hashtags, apps to use with Instagram, building an audience, promoting your work etc.

I’ve taught this workshop a few times to small groups of artist friends and the feedback has been positive. I use Instagram daily to share my work, and I think it’s one of the best tools around for creative people.

I’ve begun scheduling workshops for the upcoming fall season, and the first of these will be an altered book workshop at Hot Art Wet City. There are ten spots available and it looks like four have already been spoken for.

The class takes place on Saturday September 20th, 12:30pm to 4:30pm, at 2206 Main street at 6th Avenue.

Altered book workshop at Hot Art Wet City

The altered book workshop is an introduction on how to create sculpture from books, using techniques like folding, cutting, rolling, and working with three dimensional objects. The goal is to inspire participants, and guide each person through creating a finished piece of work by the end of class.
