Camp Creative Pro D Day: From Farm to Felt to Flower

Oct 21, 2022 8:30am – 3:30pm

Art Instructors: Chantal Cardinal and Stephanie Blundell


During this day-long camp, your young artists will explore where the medium comes from by processing raw sheep’s fleece and turning it into art; going from FARM to FELT. Our dedicated Instructor Chantal Cardinal will be collecting the wool and filming the shearing process from a local farm a week before the camp, meaning campers will have the chance to view footage of where their wool has come from! Come wearing clothes that you don’t mind getting messy with, we will be cleaning raw wool!

Please send your camper with:

  • face mask (this is a must, unless they are exempted, please notify Stephanie via email stephanieb@northvanarts.ca)
  • lunch
  • water bottle
  • rain boots
  • rain jacket

**Wet felting requires some physical activity to create the agitation needed to make felt and getting your hands wet and soapy.

Age limited: We have designed this camp and employed instructors with the experience of working with the age range of 6-11 years old.  Please do not sign up unless your child is 6+ or more on Friday the 21st of October 2022.

This year we’re lucky to be offering 2 (30OFF) discounted tickets for this day camp through ‘NVCAC Children and Youth Arts Fund’. The funds are to be used as a subsidy to help offset ticket costs for our low-income families. This is so they too can experience a life-changing camp. If this doesn’t apply to you, please choose the full-price ticket option.

If the camp you are hoping for is full, please email stephanieb@northvanarts.ca to be placed on a waitlist.  Use the subject header Camp Creative Waitlist Week (fill in the date you are interested in’) and in the body of the email let me know:
