This fall the Artisans Centre will be participating in the annual Ontario Culture Days, a national celebration of arts and culture! At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of free participatory arts and culture events across the country. These programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes, highlighting the importance of arts and culture in our communities.
Artisans Centre members will present demonstrations, displays, and hands on activities from fibre, gourd and woodturning arts.
Saturday September 24th will focus on Gourds, Saturday October 1st will focus on Fibre - Spinning and Weaving, and Saturday October 15th will focus on Woodturning. We will have small make and take opportunities for visitors to participate in. Our centre will be open during these times so you can also have a tour of the facility.

Funded by a generous grant from United Way Peterborough & District, this accessible, free, drop-in encourages you to explore new materials, experiment with new techniques, and express yourself. We provide all the materials.
Activities are geared towards ages 5 and up. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. All are welcome. No skill necessary - only curiosity and a willingness to try.
Creating Space is a community arts studio that fosters connection and resilience by making art of all sorts, telling stories, and learning together in Nogojiiwanong/ Peterborough, Ontario.
We aim to practice radical hospitality and inclusion, responding in creative ways to things that matter in our community. We do this through hosting drop in workshops at the Artisan's Centre and pop-up creative arts activities around town. We believe in the power of creative expression to foster resilience in all of us.
It is our privilege to engage in creative play on Michi Saagig Anishinaabe territory.
