Culture Days is a collaborative pan-Canadian volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
The first annual Culture Days event was held in September 2010 in over 700 Canadian cities and towns and, by all accounts, was a great success. The 2011 Culture Days weekend will take place September 30 to October 2, 2011. Annual, Canada-wide Culture Days events feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes,” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.
On October 1st, from 10am-12pm, join instructor and Fibre Art grad Elisha Barlow for a free needle felting workshop in the Great Hall of the Haliburton Campus. Call to register at 705-457-1680. All required materials required will be supplied to registered participants.
Visit the Culture Days website for more information on events and activites happening across Canada!

This week at Walkabout, we encountered musical instruments – ready for playing!-, chainsaw sculptures, printmaking, monoprints, bangles, bracelets and arm armour…it is truly incredible to see what a week can do, and what years can do – some projects have been built over years of attending HSTA courses – now that is artistic commitment!

Walkabout! A chance to peek into classes of friends, family and expose yourself to new and old techniques, ideas and of course, some good old fashioned creativity. walkabout is also an excellent way to check out a course you are considering enrolling in for next year and meet our instructors.

A weekly tradition here at HSTA, the Thursday walkabout is an opportunity for fellow students, family, friends and the community to wander through the programs offered at HSTA in the months of July & August.
