Let the wild rumpus start! This 8-week course offers youth, ages 8-10, a chance to let their imaginations run free! Students will be immersed in a world of make-believe, exploring the infinite possibilities of creating their very own monsters. The world-building of fantastical lands where three-eyed, mischievous, scary-ary creatures roam will come to life through techniques taught in printmaking, textiles, painting, and illustration. The only question remains, will your monster be a friend or foe?

P.S. Assistance available for workshop fees through PRO Kids Lunenburg, 634.4006,

Students should bring: 

  • Clothes that can get messy or an apron
  • An Afternoon snack

Jessie Mclaughlin & Sienna Maeba

Jessie Mclaughlin is a textile artist and wannabe illustrator living in Lunenburg, NS. Graduating from NSCAD University in 2020 with a BFA in textiles/fashion, she is a recent alumna of the NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studio Residency Program.

Through repetitive and laborious textile processes such as tapestry, weaving, rug hooking, and quilting, Jessie spends hours just trying to figure it all out. Like a diary trying to describe a feeling or recount a moment, she aims to record and capture the overwhelming, unexplainable parts of human emotion into something tangible. Filled with sentimentality, storytelling and humour, Jessie’s work explores concepts related to memory, intimacy and loneliness.


Sienna Maeba is a fashion and textiles designer from Toronto, Ontario and is currently based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. She has a BFA (2020) majoring in Fashion/Textiles from NSCAD University. Sienna just finished her year at the NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studio Residency Program. Sienna’s current work explores images, narratives and colour palettes based on ideas of home and what makes these spaces so familiar. This homage to the home is created through screen printing techniques, dyeing, and embroidery on garments and interactive installations.
