In the Studio: Mushroom in a Bowl with Kris Goold

by Shelby Smith

Last night the Douglas Family Art Centre hosted local artist, Kris Goold of Fragile Glass Studio, for another one of her incredible sgraffito workshops.  This time they tackled a new subject (mushrooms) and a new challenge (working in the curve of a bowl).  As always, Kris did an excellent job leading the students through the steps to create their very own Mushroom in a Bowl!


If you want to try one of Kris’s workshops for yourself, we have another one scheduled for May 18th.  This time participants will be using the mushroom motif again, but this time the technique will be applied to the outside of a porcelain mug.  These classes have a tendency to fill up, so register early to avoid disappointment!

In 1870 the Wolseley Expedition went through this area on route to the Red River Valley. Major General Garnet Wolseley got impatient and set out to cross the lake in a storm.  He got lost on the Lake of the Woods for two whole days!
