  • Workshop

It’s surprising how many different types of mysterious beasts that people believe roam the planet…there are several dozens, if not more. The technical term for such a critter is a “cryptid” which is described as a creature said to exist but is…yet…unproven.

In this workshop, in honour of our secretive friends, students will create a shrine to commemorate a cryptid of their choosing. This could be from local lore or from legends across the globe. Using found objects, clay and paint, attendees will become artistic cryptozoologists and create honorariums for our shy and beastly neighbours.

Fee: $250 + GST ($262.50) & $45 + GST ($47.25) optional supply kit
