2017 Artisan Workshops Announced!

Our Fall workshops are in full swing here at the Canoe Museum! We’ve had a great year so far and have seen some beautiful cherry paddles, leather journals, beadwork, moccasins and more!

Although workshops for the year will be coming to a close soon, we are already looking forward to our (just released) 2017 lineup, which includes some brand-new additions that we are very excited about!

Our 2017 workshop lineup has something for everyone to enjoy. We will see the return of some of our traditional favourites where you can carve a canoe paddle, learn the basics of finger weaving and weave your own pair of snowshoes. Some exciting new additions have been added too including three more beading workshops where you can choose to bead a barrette or bracelet on a loom, or make a pair of beautiful beaded rosette earrings. For winter enthusiasts, learn how to make your own anorak, winter mittens, and even a trail toboggan! If you’re already looking forward to the summer months, we will also be offering a new natural dyeing workshop in June. Dye your own fabric with all natural materials- from plants, to bugs to minerals!
