Lise Roy Memorial Family Workshop Series (bilingual)

GPS-Lise-Roy-workshop
Lise Roy was a patron of the arts. She was an active employee and member of Arts Ottawa East. Above all she wanted to share her love for the arts with children. The “Lise Roy Memorial Family Workshops” is a series of workshops, free of charge, to those who have not yet experienced the joy of pottery. It is Lise and Don Roy’s gift and wish to extend the reach of the arts to all. If you haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy the craft of pottery with your children, please sign up. Each workshop will have its own theme. We endeavour to have many new faces experience hand building! Please register every participant individually. Each workshop has 12 spots and will be taught by a bilingual instructor.
