Take advantage of a very special opportunity this coming Saturday! Blackberry Artist Tom Reid will demonstrate stone carving December 14 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the Christmas Marketplace at the Port Moody Arts Centre. Whether he's working with soapstone, BC jade, or other media, Tom is sure to make an impression. This demo will appeal to the whole family. Children will be thrilled to see a shape unfold before their eyes and adults will be intrigued by the process. Just how does someone carve a figure from a chunk of rock? Come on down and find out! While you're at the centre, let us also tempt you with the lovely creations on display in the 3-D Gallery, on the tree in the lobby and in the Blackberry Gift Shop.
