Doors open at 9:00 a.m. and the ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 3:00 p.m. with refreshments to follow. Representative from the local Business Association will be on hand.
Diane Jolicoeur, local artisan and business woman, will be managing the new craft space as well as teaching classes.

The Creative Studio will hold a variety of interactive workshops lead by Diane as well as by skilled artisans with years of experience in ceramics, painting and flower arranging. Participants can book open classes as well as private events online, including birthdays and baby showers.
“We are so excited about opening The Creative Studio,” says Sue McDonald, manager of Public Relations and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex Canada. “This is a wonderful chance for local artisans to showcase their talent and for people in Ottawa to get creative and get social with a new space to enjoy.”
