Metal & Glass classes in Toronto

Hello! Hey, part of nanopod: Hybrid Studio’s website is moving to a new host- please bare with us during what we hope to be a painless transition or at least, relatively so. The reason behind this move (we love you WP, honest!) is Square integration and ditching Paypal. As well as eventually ditching Etsy. Yep, you read that here first!
Buh bye, Etsy.

Our workshop and course page link will take you to http://nanopodstudio.weebly.com where you can buy a class seat and/or purchase items designed, created and hand-built at nanopod studio! All with your credit card, using the same system we use at the physical studio, which is: SquareUp.
Meanwhile, we are still up and running wild here at WP while the DNS goddesses help us move it on over.
Here is what’s going on at nanoHQ in downtown TO:

OCCAM’S RAZOR: Art, Science and Aesthetics

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” – Albert Einstein

“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.” – Pablo Picasso

OCCAM’S RAZOR: Art, Science and Aesthetics

At Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts

770 Don Mills Road, Toronto

Opening Reception: Thursday April 3, 7-10pm Propeller Centre for Visual arts.

These entwined ideas – which underlie Occam’s Razor – form a thread that links the realms of science and art. Scientists rely on Occam’s Razor, which holds that simpler explanations, all things being equal, are better than more complex ones, to refine their theories and experiments. With reference to Occam’s Razor, the interdisciplinary discourse presented in this exhibition by Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts and the !dea Gallery at the Ontario Science Centre, seeks to narrow the cultural divide between Art and Science.
