Ross Smart

Ross Smart will be heading up our pop-up MakerSpace again this year. He is a local artist and illustrator, who has been drawing and teaching drawing for 20 years. His whimsical work can be seen at

His upcoming workshop at the River Gallery School is:

Magic Houses
Using found objects, wood, and metal, we will each build a small fanciful dwelling, and use soapstone to carve a spirit being to inhabit it. Your house will be a perfect replica of a place that never was. Simple joinery will be used - no special carpentry skills required. The soapstone carving is simple and fun, and can be done by anyone who can peel a potato. Link
