Anyone 16 years and older interested in any aspect of the arts and crafts is invited to join Kamloops Arts and Crafts Club.
Membership is $60/year August 1st to July 31 (pro-rated for those starting in other months). Seniors 65 and older pay a $40 membership.
Benefits of club membership are reduced course and workshop fees, use of the club equipment for a number of crafts, extensive libraries of books, magazines, videos and newsletters covering a variety of interests, a monthly newsletter providing members with information on club activities and happenings, and the opportunity to sell their art at the club's two annual artisan sales.
On Tuesday mornings club members gather in the lower lounge of Heritage House. This is a social gathering for the sharing of ideas, techniques and the love of art. Coffee is on (25 cents a cup) and generally sweets are on hand. We invite you to drop in Tuesday between 9am and 1pm.
The painters may have a group project they work on or they just enjoy painting with other like-minded souls.
The many fibre artists work on a great variety of projects with some using the club's spinning wheels and looms. Everyone, including the rug hookers, needle workers, basket makers and others are always willing to share their knowledge with newcomers.
A Wednesday afternoon painting group also welcomes people to join them between 12pm and 4pm as they work on individual or group projects or explore new techniques and materials.
The pottery studio is open to potters from 8 am to midnight to give potters the opportunity to practice at their leisure. Use of the studio is restricted to member potters who have taken a recent class at Kamloops Arts & Crafts Club and the studio may not be used to create pieces for sale at other than KACC sponsored sales and shows.
