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 on 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 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!
Sunday, April 30th | 10:30 - 1:30 pm | Printmaking Workshop with Matt McInnes
In this workshop, participants will learn drypoint-- a traditional etching technique-- to create prints that represent a meal with your family or community. 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.
