Knit ‘n’ Knatter / Crochet ‘n’ Chatter

Monday, March 27, 2017, 12 – 1 pm
Main Gallery | Centre for the Arts | W600

Our programs for grown-up art fans continue with “Knit ‘n’ Knatter/ Crochet ‘n’ Chatter” one Monday each month from 12 – 1 pm.

Open to all, experienced crafty folk can bring their own projects or new comers can come and try making a granny square with the assistance of gallery staff and volunteers. The program will provide an opportunity for an informal social event to view the exhibitions, swap knitting tips, and enjoy the public space of the gallery. As a day time event, we know that it is easier for on-campus people to attend, but everyone is welcome.

The Drawing Bar

Thursday, March 30, 2017, 7 – 9 pm
Main Gallery | Centre for the Arts | W600

Our programs for grown-up art fans continue with “the Drawing Bar” one Thursday night per month from 7 – 9 pm.

As the title suggests, there is a cash bar to go along with the drawing activities. Each event will have a loose theme to give a starting point, but people can also simply come for some social art making. The gallery will provide basic materials for new comers, or those who are less picky, and staff and volunteers will be on hand if assistance is requested. Artists and the more choosy drawing fans can also bring their own clean drawing materials – the event is in the gallery during exhibitions so pastels, charcoal, or other dust generating media are not compatible with the exhibited art. Knitters are also welcome if they prefer an evening event (and the closer parking that is available at night).
