TAV CREATIONS PRESENTS the Ottawa Dancer’s Bazaar Updated Info

Something for everyone – young and old – men and women! Come on out and enjoy the afternoon!

The Dancer’s Bazaar now hosts over 40 tables of goods and services to appeal to the shopper in us all! All booked with a variety of local and out of town vendors for your shopping pleasure!

Looking for zills? Sticks? Veils? Skirts? Music? Anything you can think of, and many things you might not have thought would come in handy – tote bags and cover-ups, baladi dresses, and accessories to complete any outfit! Whew! There will be new stock from Egypt, Turkey and of course from our local artisans and designers. And be sure to check out the many deals for used costumes as well.
There are many vendors who are connected to the belly dance community who are offering products and services that might not automatically seem like a bellydance purchase, so come with an open mind! Remember this is a cash and carry event – credit cards are not likely to be accepted by most vendors. And as in the past, many new vendors will be coming out, so there will be a huge selection of products available!

Spark your Creativity through
The Artist’s Way Workshop

Part I 8-week facilitated course

This workshop is for anyone wanting to live a more creative life!

Do you like to write, sing, make music, act, paint, draw, dance, or decorate your home? Would you like to be more creative in your workplace? Maybe you are looking for a new hobby or a new way to express yourself. If so, give yourself the gift of time and join us for 8 evenings of self-discovery and fun.

Julia Cameron’s classic text, The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, will form the basis for this course. Come explore the keys to unlocking greater creativity in your life. As we work and share together, artists and non-artists alike will find the exercises and practices enlightening.

You’ll learn how to dismantle emotional blocks to creativity, including conflicts involving personal relationships, preconceived notions about success, concerns about money, and doubts about your own abilities. By the end of the course, you’ll be ready to draw out your inner artist for a heightened sense of authenticity, adventure, and creative power in your everyday life.
