What people are saying
"I have hired Christine on a number of occasions to develop and lead workshops. I appreciate her wide range of knowledge, calm presence and ability to draw out the best in groups. She brings decades of feet-on-the ground community engagement experience, which enables her to understand and connect well with all ages, backgrounds, genders and abilities. Her unique expertise in organizing and advocating for social change, arts based practices, critical thinking and practical know-how is the context in which we've worked together, and the range of topics she is able to cover is wide. Working with Christine is always refreshing, challenging and inspiring with consistently excellent feedback from participants."

"Christine has been a wonderful workshop leader for the Firelight Lantern Festival. She understands how to be supportive while letting participants experiment and express themselves. Her love of community shines through in all that she does."
Small Pond Arts, Prince Edward County
"Christine is a knowledgeable, flexible and approachable teacher. A patient teacher and natural storyteller, Christine enriched the experience and added to the friendly atmosphere of the workshop. Participants were able to dive into the creative process with the tools provided and engaged with one another. The workshop participants found that zines are a fun and interactive way to share information and find your voice."

"We sure enjoyed our felting class with Christine. She is a sweetheart. We were having our yearly sisters week and went away this year.
She helped us enjoy our felting experience and I will always remember to watch my needle. She gave us the supplies to finish our work at our leisure.
Thanks so much for a great day. Hope to see you again soon."
