About the instructor

Brenda Topley

Brenda has been doing crafts with her mom since she was little. Then in 1995 Brenda wanted to go further and turn it into art by taking short college courses with ceramics, 2D art and as many other courses she could find, and then went on to the art colleges by attending ACAD in Calgary and Red Deer College. In 2005 Brenda was introduced to a sculptural fabric hardener from Holland called Paverpol. In 2006, she took her certification training and has now earned her MPPT from the company. She started her company in 2006 near Blackfalds, Alberta.

Brenda became a full time artist/distributor/teacher in paverpol sculpture for Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. She's held about 4 art retreats every summer from 2010 – 2016 and then moved to British Columbia.
