– Next Theme: Renewal 

"When we work with love we renew the spirit; that renewal is an act of self-love, it nurtures our growth." bell hooks


Our next banner workshop is coming up November 25-26, 2023 from 10:00am-4:00pm in the Britannia Secondary School Cafeteria.

Use high quality water-based fabric paints to help create Britannia's next set of colourful banners. Banners are large and hang in pairs and will be displayed outdoors on site and in the Library. This is a great workshop for friends and family.

The workshop is held in the secondary school cafeteria. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Wear old clothes, bring a lunch and a colour sketch of your idea. Banners can be purchased after exhibition for $20/set. Artists get first chance to buy their own banners. Unclaimed banners may be available at a Britannia Plaza Market in the summer. All materials will be provided.


$20 for 2 sessions. Register online here.
