There’s just something about fall. There’s just something about fall. It’s always been the season I look forward to most, maybe it’s the crisp leaves, cool early mornings and getting cozy at home. There’s something about the turning of the leaves that, to me, feels like one chapter is ending and a new one is beginning. This fall, that new chapter for me is about creativity, collaboration and community. My wish is to provide an inspiring environment where connection and creativity flows, and our community of Squamish creatives continues to grow. The Bungalow 968 space is a place for creatives, artists & makers to gather, showcase their goods and share their skills with others through our offering of workshops. You’ll see there are changes to our workshop formatting, online booking, not to mention our creative space at our shop, all to make way for new collaborations. All workshops are ready for booking at Bungalow968.ca. I’m thrilled to welcome all of you into this new chapter with me. I hope to see you in the shop soon or at a workshop, connecting while creating something you love.
