This spot used to be full of thread, cotton fabric and sewing machines…and now you would never recognize the place! It’s called Cryptic Hive. CH has been open for a while and I still haven’t been inside. I thought it was just a tattoo service but there’s also art, I’m learning, and jewelry. I’ll have to check it out.
Once again, I’m amazed at all the art in this small town. There are more art galleries than sport shops in Fernie! Truth.

I just wanted to share this great little group that has recently started up. I’m calling it the independent drawing club because it’s just a group of people who want to get together and draw/paint.
It all started after Anna Weston decided to leave Fernie, which meant our Dynamic Life Drawing class was coming to an end. A few of the life drawing students organized these Thursday (every other week) drawing nights at The Arts Station. There have only been two, so far, and each night has featured a new technique or lesson but you are also free to come and draw or paint or do whatever it is that you do. Some times it’s nice just to be around other people who love to create.
It’s free, as long as you have a membership to The Arts Station. Everyone is welcome! If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll get you more details.
