Felted Wall Hanging
The winner of our first raffle was Stefanie Arduini (Greenwood). This gorgeous piece wasentitled “Perched on Granite”. It was created by Black Rock artist Carolyn Low using wool, silk and mohair to show a fluid sky, sun-lit trees and textured rock. The piece was framed in wood and measured 30” by 40”. This online art raffle raised over $1,000 which will be used to improve and maintain our markets as well as our community cultural & heritage events and projects.

2nd Raffle of 2021 Mosaic Stained Glass – Delphiniums in the window
This is glass on glass mosaic which is done on an old window. The winner of this beautiful stained glass window was Debra Jardine from Kentville! Thanks to everyone who supported this fundraiser! Proceeds from this raffle went to a local family who had lost their home to fire.
CATHERINE VAN DER WOERD, MOSAIC ARTIST
I was born in Halifax and returned to Nova Scotia in 2013 after spending most of my life in Banff, Alberta working in the tourist industry. I enjoy my summers by the Bay of Fundy in Harbourville and my winters by my cozy wood stove in Cornwallis. I have always enjoyed creating art and playing with different mediums before finding my passion in mosaic stained glass. In between mosaic projects you might find me painting with the vibrant colours of alcohol ink. I love nature and I am always inspired by my surroundings!
