Textile Workshop

September 9, 12-2pm: Textile Workshop
Lakeshore Arts, 2422 Lakeshore Boulevard West, Etobicoke

Join us in this hands-on workshop and learn two sustainable textile techniques: wool felting and eco-printing. Felted wool stones echo Lake Ontario’s pebble beaches, while the leaves of native plants pattern cotton and silk. Our collective work contributes to costumes for On the Brink’s dancers and musicians. With designer Sonja Rainey and artistic director Juliet Palmer.

Space is limited to 10 participants: register now!
