Toba Inlet is the glacier blue artery punching into the heart of the Toba River Valley and its mountainous flanks to access the mainland body of Klahoose traditional territory. Toba: The Heart Home Toba: The Heart Home by Rochelle Baker, Deep Roots Island Waves An entity in and of itself, Toba resources were, and continue to be, vital to Klahoose survival, culture and economic well-being. The notion place can have affect on those that reside there is ancient and widespread in human history. The Toba has shaped and has been shaped by the Klahoose, and the settlers, homesteaders and loggers who followed. The story of Toba: The Heart Home is how living in his people’s traditional territory profoundly shaped a young boy. And, how that experience built a foundation of resilience, and forged an inspirational bond with an ancestor, both of which he’d draw upon to surmount challenges later in life.  Rochelle Baker, reformed newspaper reporter and former urban princess, recently moved to the Discovery Islands to try and recapture the enchantment of her childhood summers on Cortes Island. The sound of the radio was a permanent feature in her home growing up, and remains so today.

Quadra Island Studio Tour: June 2-3, 2018

There is nothing quite as magical as getting a glimpse of an artist at work in their studio. It is an experience that cannot be replicated - for so many artists, their studios are an extension of their soul. Every year for the past 16 years the artists on Quadra Island have opened up their studios to the public on the first weekend in June for the Quadra Island Studio Tour.  Quadra Island Studio Tour by Rochelle Baker http://rest.s3for.me/discovery-sound/2018+CKTZ+Quadra+Studio+Tour.mp3 For these two exciting days you can explore the amazing creative forces this community has to offer. There is a huge range of work to take in. Gary Colter makes the most incredibly intricate jewelry from recycled watches and fossils. Gordon James will wow you with both his gorgeous prints, and the amazing pottery he makes with his wife Martha. Maureen Maryka paints such vibrant images of the West Coast that they just about explode off the canvas! Tracy Myerson will captivate you with the stunning colors and patterns in her fused glass pieces. And Terry Phillips uses textiles the way most artists use a brush and canvas - her quilts are spectacular works of art. These are but a few of the many talented artists on this year’s tour! There is so much to see and learn, you’ll probably have to come back! Many of the artists studios are open year round, here is your first chance to meet the artists and see them in their environment.
