Shirley’s in Princeton is the place to party

Shirley Freding offers Birthday Party and Christmas Gift Party classes for children and adults.

Local Theresa Martin decided to throw her daughter-in-law a surprise birthday party at Shirley’s Art Studio. Shirley and Sophie Martin are shown admiring the pasta bowls that party goers created during the birthday party. Shirley is offering gift making party/classes for Christmas as well.

Forty years ago, Shirley Freding decided to provide the residents of Princeton with recreational alternatives for those who were not interested in sports.

“Anyone can learn to paint or do many types of crafts,” has become her signature statement.

Freding is a self taught professional artist who has been experimenting and expanding her knowledge with various techniques in ceramics, pottery, kiln fired glass, oil painting, watercolours and numerous other crafts.

Regular classes for adults and children are available at Freding’s teaching studio and gift shop Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Special classes can be arranged for day, evening or weekends by giving Freding a call at 250-295-4076.

Freding has been offering Birthday Party classes for children and as of late adults as well.

The parties have been a hit, so Freding has decided to open them up for the holiday season.

“Make this Christmas a home-made Christmas,” said Freding. “Come in and we’ll have a gift making party.”

Freding has recently brought in new supplies and is now offering classes in Jewellery making—another gift idea added to the vast collection that she offers.

Stop by 162 Vermilion Avenue, peruse the gift shop or talk to Freding about taking a class or making a gift whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or otherwise, she will be more than happy to share her knowledge with you.

On another note, Freding’s talents and popularity have traversed outside of Princeton. She is being honoured as the Feature Artist of the month during December 2012 at the Oliver Art Gallery. She will also be teaching watercolour classes there soon. While you are travelling in December, stop by the Oliver Art Gallery to see what she has showing.
