Welcome to my

Paverpol Workshops!

Believe me, you can do this amazing art form. Let me show you the techniques to create your own special work. My workshops include everything you will need to know to get started. From beginner to advanced you will increase your knowledge and understanding of all Paverpol products, their various artistic affects and how to apply to your creation. Plus your sculpture will make an incredible gift for family or friends. Nothing better than a personal gift from the heart!  Or, let me create a gift for you!

Join me at my studio for these educational and fun workshops.
Check out what is available and go to the Book a Workshop page for full details. There is a prerequisite for the more advanced workshops. You will need to attend one of the beginner courses before deciding on the more advanced workshops. We need to take baby steps before we get to the larger projects. Learning the basic techniques for this art form is everything!

Workshops

There are approximately 8 various workshops available, with many more to come in the near future. If there is something special that you would like to create for Valentines Day, Easter, Christmas or a special occasion for a friend or family  then we can discuss together and I'll make it happen.  The possibilities are endless.  I also do commission work for those who would like me to create something for them.  You will find full information regarding what to expect and cost of each workshop under the Book A Workshop page.  Any questions...just call Liz - 613-217-3385 or email: openingmindsinnovations@yahoo.com.

The Heron or Flamingo Workshop

The Heron workshop has become very popular with my participants.  I've now added the Flamingo that will also be offered this year.  These look amazing in your garden.  Prerequisite is the beginner class.  These two birds are very detailed and require basic knowledge of how to use Paverpol.  Both birds stand at approximately 4' high. On my Gallery Page you will find a picture of both birds in my Garden.  I receive so many complements from people who see them.  Lots of fun to make!

My Little Childrens Series

These little creatures make amazing gifts!  You can design your little child in any form you want.  Maybe a ballerina, a cowboy or a favourite sport figure that has meaning for the person receiving this gift. The possibilities are endless!  I also take commissioned requests from people who may not want to create their own piece - your choice! This is also a beginner workshop.

Specialty Gifts

or

Commission Requests 

I've created a series of specialty workshops which include but not limited to various requests I've received from my participants. If there is a particular item that you would like to create let me know and we can sit down to discuss your vision.  I've had people ask me to make 4' garden sculptors with their visions in mind. I love creating for others. Some ideas are: Masks, horses, flower arrangements on wood background and vases etc..  Again, the ideas are endless. Let me know what you are looking for and I'll make it happen.

 

Private Group Functions.

Group functions have been a big hit with my participants. Sometimes people are just more comfortable being with the people they know and love. 

 

These ladies have a yearly get together and decided to have a private session with me. They were so much fun and they loved the days session. Of course a great lunch was served.

 

Maybe there is someone who is having a birthday, but you don't know what to get them? This would make a great gift for them knowing they will be with family or friends creating something special together. Gift certificates are available.

 

Let me know what you are planning and we'll make that work for you!
