Celebrate May Day Weekend, and the beginning of the growing season, with a series of family-friendly events brought to you by Workers Arts & Heritage Centre and the Hamilton and District Labour Council!
This year's slate of May Day Weekend festivities will allow visitors to create works of art that reflect and honour agricultural workers in Canada and beyond. Drop in to contribute to a monumental work of public art by Dave Hind and the Aluminum Quilting Society, commissioned for by the city for the Hamilton Farmer's Market, or sign up in advance for youth and adult printmaking workshops lead by local artists Matt McInnes and Ingrid Mayrhofer!
Saturday, April 29th | 1 - 4 pm | Block Printing Workshop with Ingrid Mayrhofer
In this workshop, learn the process of block printing using Softoleum while making prints that consider where all the components of our favourite meals come from, and the workers and tools that allowed our food to make the journey from the farm to the plate. This workshop costs a materials fee of $10 (sliding scale) and is open to youth and adults 12 and up. Pre-registration is required by phone or email, or through Eventbrite.
For more information, contact Tara Bursey, Program Coordinator at email@example.com or (905) 522-3003 ex. 29. This program is supported by our members, volunteers, operating funders and union supporters.
