Saturday scene at our 1803 Danforth Makerspace with @abbiyaahwu making his signature cutting boards, which are absolutely stunning in person (scroll through to see a video ➡️). This one is made out of walnut, oak and maple. Abbi is one of the amazing volunteers who runs our free Community Nights every Wednesday from 7-10pm. So if you have a project in mind, something to be repaired or just want to experiment with our laser cutter, wood shop and 3D printers, Abbi is one of the experienced makers who would be on hand to help you. We love our volunteers 🤗 All of our volunteers get free 24/7 access to the maker space and free training on all the tools #volunteerto#volunteertoronto#TTLmade
I highly recommend going to see @artistprojectto at the Better Living Centre this weekend. The breadth of talent is even wider this year - there are so many pieces there that I was just freaking out over. Not least of all every single piece created by @lanafilippone, one of my very favourite artists (who won the first place Swatch award!). Go drink prosecco and nod judiciously in front of paintings like a cultured/pretentious person or just straight up stand with your face six inches away from the piece and emphatically gush over it like I do. (I am not cool). #art#artist#torontoart#torontoartists#instaart#instaartist#theartistproject#theartistprojecttoronto

quick sketches of rabbits on paper covered with rabbit skin glue🐰
I had a chance to see a brief process of making dead rabbit skin glue for using as an adhesive (which exists since ancient times!). Not my favorite, though😣 It has an odd smell (not quite strong but haunting😂)
When applying the glue on paper, it turned out as an extremely smooth surface. You can see the traces of my eraser everywhere since it is sooo hard to erase and not a good idea to combine different materials (my attempt to use mixed media including watercolor, colored pencils and pastel is a disaster that I may upload the photo later). All in all, just my personal opinion; I don't have much experiences with this kind of binder anyway.
About last night... Toronto debut show for @brianpolidixonart and his Genius series with my ever-gorgeous @anastazystyle and my favourite piece "Bruce" @coldstreamfineart #genius#artinthe6ix#torontoartists
We were fortunate enough to attend the #inspiring annual @artistprojectto yesterday which is on until tomorrow in #toronto . We've put together a roundup of our top 3 favourites.
We were blown away by the work of the lovely and talented artist Loraine Mohar @laadyloraine. Her magical collages were incredibly beautiful and absolutely captivated and inspired us.
We also loved the work of the wonderful Vanessa McKernan @vainter. We adored her use of colour, and her paintings had a dream-like, ethereal quality that we were immediately drawn to.
Next would have to be the photography of Maureen O'Connor @maureenfaithoconnor. Her mesmerizing work of live animals shot in hauntingly beautiful abandoned dwellings was awe-inspiring. 📸maureenfaithoconnor.com
If you have a chance to attend this show this weekend you will not be disappointed. We definitely were not!!
