Studio Do: A Night of Crafting Presented by Do Sask and Wet Paint Pottery

Studio Do is where friends (and wine) make crafting more fun!
Do Sask’s mission is to cultivate meaningful relationships through fun events. We help people connect by producing experiences like craft workshops and speed dating in Saskatoon.
 
Do Sask, in partnership with Wet Paint Pottery, is thrilled to announce the creation of an after-hours, adults-only studio space where friends new and old gather, get inspired and create together.
 

Presenting Studio Do #1: a Night Out for Crafty Adults

Wet Paint Pottery will open its doors after-hours, while Do Sask provides everything you need to make a project you will be proud of and an opportunity to meet new people while you’re at it!
Do Sask is working hard to develop upscale craft projects all the time. Studio Do’s list of projects is growing to include jewellery, seasonal decor, glass work, and more.
I am looking for new projects all the time, so stay tuned for details and to register.
What you get when you register for Studio Do:
  1. Learn how to make your own crafts with my help;
  2. An opportunity to meet other crafty people through fun ice breaker games;
  3. A glass of wine as the cherry-on-top of an already jam-packed social mixer.
If you don’t see a project you’d like to make, leave a suggestion. I really listen.

How Studio Do #1 will shake down:

Happy shakedown guy via http://imgur.com/gallery/7cM0GqE
  • Break the ice with fun games that let you get to know the others before crafting begins.
  • Craft projects are short enough to finish in the allotted 2-hour time frame, but big enough to feel good about the end result.
  • All guests are entitled to one complimentary beverage with their registration.
Okay, on to the important stuff…  like YOUR INVITATION

Add some fresh greenery to your home, or give it as a gift alongside a bottle (or box) of vino. Easy and decorative DIY wine glass terrariums are incredibly stress-free to maintain, love an abundance of sun and are drought tolerant.

Saskatoon Fringe 2017: Highlights and Reviews from the Street

The countdown is on to the last day of Saskatoon Fringe 2017 on August 14. Broadway has come alive over the past week and a half with strong, female performances. And fried food. Lots of fried food.

Here are the highlights from the shows we checked out this week:

Saskatoon Fringe 2017 Indoor Theatre

Windy Wynazz is… Rich and Famous ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If Liza Minnelli, Mr. Rogers, Kesha and Andy Dick managed to raise a human together… you’d have Windy.

Before the show started Wynazz sat next to me and asked if she looked okay, or if she needed darker lipstick. Her face was caked in makeup with false eyelashes on both her top and bottom lids and a nude lip. I said no, you look like you’re channeling Liza Minnelli. Her incessant need for audience approval continued throughout the show.

Windy takes the audience on an augmented trip through her life from a bullied Jewish kid to an insecure druggie rockstar wannabe with a love affair for the transformational power of wigs. She sells her soul to the devil and doesn’t get what she wants most – fame. It’s outlandish while remaining relateable.

If you haven’t picked up on it yet, Windy is nuts. She gave me two of her shoes and told me to talk to Liza and “her mother”. When I obliged she told me to shut up because it was her show.

I laughed so hard my face still hurts, but I felt wrong about it at times. Especially when she fed Chris blueberries and gave him a blindfolded lap dance.

The Merkin Sisters ⭐⭐⭐

What’s up with the hair obsession?

Maybe the Stephanie Morin-Robert and Ingrid Hansen were offering a bizarre commentary on the avant-garde visual art that takes samples and puts them on display. They demonstrated how unconventional hair can be.

The ladies start the show in bathing suits and swim caps, interrupting the audience by walking through different rows and tapping people in tune with the music.

Once on stage, they use an old sweater to depict the birth of a white glove baby. The white glove then helps them pluck hair from each other and audience members. The collection then becomes the magic concoction that transforms them into giant bouncing hair balls.

I’m pretty sure a few people walked out. But that didn’t stop the rest of us from trying to figure out what the whole show was about.

A bizarrely hilHAIRious show with the randomness of Robot Chicken.

Check out more indoor shows here.

Saskatoon Fringe 2017 Street Performances

The Silver Starlets ⭐⭐⭐

Saskatoon Fringe 2017 Silver Starlets
A male volunteer looks on from his sparkle spot while he gets ready to replace their third member “Olga”.

A bubbly Canadian aerial duo with some adult jokes and plenty of risky moves. Like bravely unravelling aerial silks down to the road from 20 Ft. above ground.

Hannah Cryle ⭐⭐⭐

Lazy days in Saskatoon are necessary preparation for big nights. #yxefringe #saskatoon #bigwheelshow #spiral

A post shared by Hannah Cryle (@hannahcryle) on

-relied on mom and her daughter, Coco from the audience.
An Australian contortionist, hoola hooper, and a balancing act who combines all three atop a German wheel.
Her message: “Seriously it’s 2017 – we need to close the gender pay gap. The streets are the only place where we’re treated as equals.”

Marc Rousseau Comics “A Miserable Guide to Saskatoon”

4 more days left! I’m set up at thr Saskatoon Fringe. Come on out and say hi! #yxe #yxefringe

A post shared by Marc Rousseau (@marcrousseaucomics) on

Rousseau’s comic preview is probably all you’ll get to see since all of his books have been selling out. From the first page you’ll be nodding in agreement and chuckling at his observations on the quirks of Saskatoon.

Example: “I’m very racist and I’m very sorry” – a reference to “I am the bridge” anti-racism campaign released by the City of Saskatoon this summer.

Books are selling for $18, but Marc can’t make them fast enough. (He prints them and publishes them himself.) Somebody at the StarPhoenix should hire this guy!

Saskatoon Fringe 2017 Food

  • Chick-a-lic Funnel Cake Sundae complete with Skor bits, chocolate, caramel, and whipped cream.
  • Strawberry Malt from Pink Cadillac.
  • The Hose & Hydrant Patio for tacos and a bulldog.
  • GIANT jugs of flavoured lemonade.
  • Wholesome ice cream rolls with different local flavours.

Make sure you get down to the Saskatoon Fringe 2017 this weekend to check out these shows and more before it’s all over.

Make your own alcohol ink coaster at Thursday Night Art Market YXE

Saskatchewan Pride Alcohol Ink Ceramic Tile Coaster
Learn how to become an alcohol ink artist!

Back by popular demand, this Thursday Night Art Market I’ll teach you how to make a custom alcohol ink ceramic tile coaster for $10. You’ll take home your coaster to show all of your friends what your artistic talents are made of!

*This is not a formal workshop and does not require advance registration. I’ll be taking “students” on a first-come, first served basis.

Alcohol Ink Ceramic Tile Coaster Mini-Maker

Saskatchewan Pride Alcohol Ink Ceramic Tile Coaster

Ceramic tiles are non-porous so alcohol inks won’t permeate the surface.

Supplies you’ll use:

  • 4×4 Ceramic White Tile
  • Ranger Ink Alcohol Ink
  • Isopropanol Alcohol
  • Cotton Pad
  • Q-Tip
  • Drinking Straw

Techniques:

1. Stamp the ink onto the tile with cotton pad,

2. blow the ink before it dries with a straw,

3. drip the ink with a paint brush,

4. sprinkle alcohol on top of the ink to create a star-like galaxy,

5. Remove ink for clean finish with alcohol soaked brush or Q-Tip,

6. Use tape or decal to create precise symbols that you will stamp over.

To protect your finished alcohol ink ceramic tile coaster you’ll need:

  • Modge Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • EnviroTex Lite Resin Kit
  • Popsicle Stick
  • Disposable Mixing Dish
  • Cork or Felt (protects wood surfaces)
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue

If you want to use your alcohol ink ceramic tile coaster for everyday coffee and tea you will need to protect it by using the following method:

  1. Paint Modge Podge onto your tile and let it dry for about 60 minutes. (This protects the colour from the resin.)
  2. Mix resin and hardener together in a disposable dish for two minutes.
  3. Once the resin has thickened from stirring drip the mixture onto your tile and spread the mixture evenly across it.
  4. Shake your tile to get bubbles out. There may be some bubbling, but remember this project isn’t perfect!
  5. Put the tile in a safe, relatively dust free area to set for up to 72 hours.
  6. Cut cork or felt to fit 4×4 tile and hot glue to the bottom.

New doers can WIN stuff!

If you like Do Sask, encourage your friends and family to come down to the Thursday Night Art Market and sign up to become a Doer. When they opt-in to the newsletter they will have a chance to Win a To-Go Terrarium Kit package for 3 – a $90 value!*

Terrarium Kit CompleteTwo draws will be made on July 27th and September 7th, 2017. Our first draw for the Terrarium Kit “Night In” happens this Thursday at 9:00 PM!

*To qualify, winners must be new Doers (you can always ask them nicely to share the prize).

Hope to see you at #ThursdayNightArtMarketYXE!

I’ll be set up at Market Square in front of the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market just off Avenue B and 19th street every Thursday from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM until September 7th. River Landing is only steps away.
