Val is a thoughtful mentor. In our sessions she shared insights on studio practice as well as specifics in painting such as warm and cool light sources and palette selection. She provided valuable feedback, and prompted me to answer some of my own questions too. She helped me discover ways of achieving the results I was looking for. I’m grateful to have connected with her!

I attended one of the Slow Maker Contemporary fibre prep sessions in fall 2019. I have to say, it was a very new area for me. From processing wool to making a felt craft, this full-day experience was wonderful! Really helped me understand and value the labour of love that is working with wool. I appreciated the approach to teaching and how flexible the workshop was.
