Creative Thursdays are a great way to explore art techniques on selected Thursday evenings. Drop in for demonstrations by working artists, and get creative yourself!

Join Ottawa artist Kathryn Finter for a workshop inspired by Henry van de Velde’s beautifully designed editions of Nietzsche’s books, as featured in the exhibition Masterpiece in Focus: Friedrich Nietzsche and the Artists of the New Weimar.  

Participants will learn about the materials and techniques involved in the art of manuscript illumination, followed by an opportunity to create their own original designs.

All materials and tools will be provided. This activity is intended for beginners and experts alike. 

Staff from DeSerres will also be on hand, offering coupons, product demonstrations and the chance to win a $50 gift card.

Free admission
