Young Dominican Artist Called Upon to Do Something Different
Yesterday marked the end of a four-day craft workshop held at the Life Goes on Ministries in Goodwill by Mrs. B. Lana Adams-Steele and her husband, Linden Steele.
The Barbadian couple were invited here by Ms. Tina Alexander from the Lifeline Ministries to teach individuals about their crafts.
Mrs. Steele, who is currently involved in preparing carnival costumes for Barbados’ carnival said that she hopes what she teaches can be implemented to the crafts that the participants already do.
The couple has taught the participants how to make copper jewelry, and crafts with recycled material among other things.
Mrs. Steele advised young artists to be original and to find ways to make their work as artists unique. She said that it was up to them to create employment for themselves as artists.
Ms. Madlene Bonnie, a participant of the workshop is very pleased about what she has learnt thus far.
Mr. and Mrs. Steele has hosted a number of workshops during their three week visit to the island. Before their four-day workshop in Roseau, they conducted two-day workshops in Dublanc, Portsmouth and the Carib Territory.
