Connect . Create . Be Happy

Are you looking for ways to connect, create, and find some happy? 

Ply Studio is a physical workshop & events space in Ottawa but we also offer virtual workshops and events that will help you to slow down, connect with others and create something beautiful. The very act of making stuff by hand is good for us. Go on - give yourself permission to learn new skills or expand on ones you already have. Ply Studio is a place where “no/I can’t/not today” is replaced by “why not?”. Oh, and we have lots of supplies to fuel your next creative obsession.

Come make stuff with us.

"Our group had such a fun afternoon! Carmen was great at moving everyone through the workshop with individual attention and advice, and we were all able to complete our art projects in just a few hours."

Jil

"I wouldn't consider myself a 'crafty' person so the fact that I enjoyed making a wall hanging AND I actually hung it up when I got home was really satisfying."

Lorie

"I had fun, enjoyed your guests/neighbours/friends as well as the lovely informal setting. Keep up your creative skills & your relaxing teaching techniques. My new weaving is quite fetching!"

Diane

"Taking one of Carmen's workshops was the perfect antidote to 2 queries: what should I do for fun this week AND what will keep me busy through this winter? Learn to weave!"

Jeremy

Take a workshop this winter!

Imagine weeks of kids, partners, noise, inside time without end. Now imagine a few hours to yourself, learning a new skill and even (gasp) drinking wine at the same time!
