Women's dj workshop
Join instructors DJ Donna Lovejoy and Fazooli for an introductory DJ workshop designed exclusively for women and non-binary/gender-creative individuals. Learn the basics of analogue (vinyl) DJing, including the anatomy of a technical DJ setup, a brief history of DJ culture, as well as technical skills such as simple beat-matching and song transitions, amongst many different musical genres. This fun and informative workshop offers the opportunity for hands-on training in a safe, non-intimidating, and supportive group setting. By the end of the workshop, you will be inspired to dig deeper into the world of DJing! Workshops will be held at Dr.Disc (upstairs), located at 20 Wilson Street, right at the heart of Downtown Hamilton, on Tuesdays from 7-9pm, at a cost of $50/per student. A Nightclub Workshop will be available also, so you can learn on a big sound system at Club Absinthe, located at 38 King William Street in Hamilton from 7-9pm, at a cost of $50/per student.

I was in Sarnia at the Judith & Norman Art Gallery this July teaching a workshop just for teens, aged 14-18! I was showing the basics of DJing in an intensive 4 day workshop, running from July 17-20th, and we had a total blast! Participants aged 11-16 learned all about the history of DJing, technical introductions with the equipment so they can hook up full sound systems on their own and understand safety requirements, DJ etiquette, how to throw your own party, and basic mixing techniques such as the straight fade, cutting, kills, beat matching, rewind, as well as a bit of scratching! We also developed our own DJ personas with DJ names and logos. Our last day was reserved for a mini-show, where participants picked out records for a 20 minute set, and created a show from start to finish! What an amazing summer learning experience!
Do you have an unruly teen in your life that could use some positive mentorship and something to do with all that extra trouble-making energy? I might have just the thing for ya - I'm instructing a series of workshops exclusively for teens via the Burlington Public Library to teach them all about street art and graffiti! Students will be able to learn basic techniques using stencils, spray paint, paint markers and wheat paste to create their own take-home projects and get their creative juices flowin so they can focus their skills in a positive direction! They'll also learn the history and difference behind graffiti and street art, as well as street etiquette so they don't get into trouble! The first of these will begin on July 31st, but more workshops will be announced in the fall and winter.
FUTURE WORKSHOPS WILL BE ANNOUNCED VERY SOON!
