Tett Tuesday Open Studio


On the second Tuesday of every month we get together at the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning for an evening of creativity, conversation and connection. Due to Covid-19, we have gone digital! Join us online, in the comfort of your own home. Our goal is to stay connected, encourage at-home art-making, prioritize self-care, and to promote community wellness.
Join our facilitator, Danielle Folkerts, for a live Zoom session, in the comfort of your own home. We invite you to grab an art or craft project and participate online. Share what you have been working on, see what others are creating, watch live demonstrations and participate in group discussions. You are welcome here!
All art mediums welcome. Painting, knitting, drawing, collage, printmaking, embroidery, jewellery, sculpture, digital editing, mixed media, you name it.
FREE, Ages 18+. No registration required. All mediums & skill levels welcome.
How can you join?
1. Set up a free Zoom account. https://zoom.us/
2. Request to join the Tett Tuesday Open Studio Facebook Group for the Zoom Meeting ID & Passwords links.

4. Join the Live Zoom session at 7pm - 9pm. Drop in anytime and for as long as you like. You are welcome here.
Housekeeping Rules:
1. When you will arrive, everyone's microphones will be muted. This is to avoid distraction from the sounds coming from everyone's' homes. When you want to speak, please unmute yourself and talk. Just remember to put yourself back on mute again when you are done speaking.
2. The person who is speaking appears to have a green frame around them when they are speaking. Please also say your name before speaking, so people know who it is.
3. If multiple people want to speak at the same time, please use the "hand up" function so that we can make sure to see that you would like to intervene.
