Janey has a friendly and giving approach to her teaching. She has many amazing unique skills to share.
~Melanie R., Squamish Nation Expressive Arts Therapist, Artist + Facilitator
With Janey’s instruction, my class made salmon skin leather. My class was very engaged, interested and stimulated. Making salmon skin leather was a cross-curricular activity and Janey incorporated a respectful indigenous world view into her teaching style and content. Her expertise, knowledge and warmth created a valuable learning opportunity and a long lasting memory for my students.
