Each year invites you to celebrate International Women’s Day by learning traditional craft techniques from Indigenous and New Canadian master craftswomen. In this free, drop-in mega-workshop you can try your hand at four different crafting stations. Crafts taught in past years have included: Granite Engraving, Loom Beading, Decoupage and Quillwork. Meet people from around the world and around your community, while crafting and enjoying international snacks.
Why does MAWA host the Craftstravaganza and why should you participate? Because it’s fun! It promotes cross-cultural learning, keeps traditional craft techniques alive, and provides employment opportunities for Indigenous and New Canadian women.
