Art Clay Silver at Prairie
Stained Glass
After much research we have finally found the right connection to allow us to become involved in the growing Art Clay Silver market. Art Clay Silver is a pure metal powder mixed with a non-toxic binder. When fired the binder burns away, leaving a 99.9 % pure silver product. It can be rolled, sculpted, stamped, sanded, filed, engraved, drilled and pre-polished, all prior to firing by torch, gas top stove or in your kiln. This product has unlimited potential to be used creatively to make jewelry. We have samples of the finished products on display in the shop and are offering numerous classes this fall.

5th WAVE Artists’ Studio Tour 2006
Our website www.watchthewave.ca
Saturday & Sunday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm
September 2 & 3
Great Weekend Adventures in Art:
The tour focuses on art and culture in the Interlake communities. Essentially a self-guided tour, visitors can
meet artists and artisans for an up close and personal experience in the artist’s studio/workshop.
The tour menu features artists accomplished in these fine crafts: pottery, stained glass, lampwork glass
jewellery, fibre art, hooked rugs, quilts, photography. Jewellery, influenced by ancient Celtic designs,
watercolour paintings, acrylic and mixed media; and exquisitely designed willow furniture. A luthier who
crafts customs-designed guitars and other stringed instruments brings the discipline of music to give another
tempo to the tour. There are eclectic galleries that show high caliber art work by a selection of Manitoba
artists both local and province wide.

Hello all Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library members,

I hope that everyone had a great summer. I am just finishing up the newsletter and the programming brochure, so you should get this by next week at the latest.

However, I do need to find 10 volunteers who are able to work a fundraising bingo on Monday, September 11, at 4:30-6:45 at Club Regent. The money is being used to fund research on the 75th Anniversary book. Please let me know if you can help. It’s not a hard job, and it is essential for this project.

Thanks in advance,
