Blooming Together for Culture Days 2021

August 24, 2021

Join our latest community art project!

It’s been a difficult year. Things have seemed dark, scary, and isolating. But just like seeds buried alone in the earth, we have all been growing and moving towards the light. Let’s come out into the air, create some art, and bloom together! We will make suncatchers in the shape of flower petals, decorating them however you wish. These petals will be combined and displayed in the windows of Central Winnipeg during Culture Days.

To make a petal you can:

Join a group creation session at Studio Central: Saturday September 11, September 25, or October 9 1:00-2:30 pm
Tuesday September 28 1:00-2:30 pm – space is very limited!
Thursday September 30 3:30-6:00 pm
Creating a petal does not take too long – drop in anytime during the session!
If you’re not comfortable at group events right now, you can pick up a kit with your petal and everything you need from Artbeat Studio (62 Albert Street) or Studio Central (2nd floor Portage Place, around the corner from Dollarama) starting August 30. Decorate your petal and return it to us before October 9.
