Santa’s Workshops slated

The whole family can make seasonal crafts at the Arts and Rec Centre

Quesnel and District Leisure Services, in partnership with the Quesnel Art Gallery will host Santa’s Workshop on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The event is for both adults and children to create unique holiday ornaments, wrapping paper, cards and gifts for giving.

Adult tables will have more complex projects and the children’s tables will have lots of fun hands-on crafts. Local artists will be there as Santa’s elves, helping participants with their festive creations. The $10 entry fee provides visitors with three craft tickets to use towards three projects of their choice. Net proceeds go towards the Quesnel Art Gallery’s operating costs for 2014.

“This is a first–time event for us here at the Quesnel Arts and Recreation Centre”, Elizabeth Waldorf, Leisure Services’ Art program coordinator said.

“I had wanted to find a new fundraising initiative for the gallery, as it is volunteer run and has a full roster of 2014 exhibitions to support. I also feel strongly that adults need opportunities to play and create, just the same as kids. This is an event where all

members of the family can

find activities that spark their interest.

“The event is a whole combination of good things for all involved. The art gallery will receive financial support, both adults and children will have the opportunity to meet artists and create unique holiday crafts and the gallery Beaux Arts sale will be open especially for the event.”
