Fishing Stage Ornaments Workshop with Sarah O'Rouke Whelan

The goal of this workshop will be for participants to create miniature 20th century fishing stages, based on the structures that dotted and continue to dot the island's shores. Materials will be provided to create realistic miniature versions of these beautiful structures of Newfoundland Heritage. Participants may choose to mount them onto beach rocks, or loops to use as christmas tree decorations.

This workshop is made possible by funding from Arts NL, and is based off my paintings of Newfoundland fishing stages. A component of this workshop will be teaching what I learned during my research phase of my grant project, as well as briefly demonstrating my painted work.
