Talented artist and entrepreneur, Jeff Banks, owns and operates JBArts, a combination art store and art studio on Mill Street right in downtown Almonte.  There’s a constant flow of adults, youth and children coming through the doors for the many and varied art classes that Jeff has to offer.   Often, JBArts is booked for a very special kind of birthday party – a party which includes an art project for the guests to do with Jeff, pizza for everybody, and a piñata.   JBArts is definitely a fun place for all ages!!

Recently, Jeff has partnered with Puppets Up! to present a series of 11 puppet workshops which will start in January and run until July – just before the puppet festival weekend on August 10th and 11th.  A number of very talented artists and puppeteers will present workshops that relate in some way to the art of puppetry and which will be for adults, parents and child duos, and children.  The best part of the workshop series is that costs will be kept as low as possible and there will be something tangible to take home from every class.  If you’re interested in taking one of these excellent classes, check out Jeff’s website at  www.JBArts.ca  to find out about his business and about the wonderful puppet workshops which JBArts and Puppets Up! are offering.
