Date and time


Canadian Tapestry & Texture Centre

Alnwick/Haldimand, ON

Directions: Easiest way to get to the parking is off of County Rd. 29, and not Covert Hill as that entrance is a private driveway. From the large outdoor gravel parking lot, there will be directions signalling you to the entrance of the Centre & Gallery through our garden fence into the premises.



Offered in Spanish, Polish, and English.

Has gender-neutral washrooms.


Join two artists in an ambitious exploration of what it means to be present. Ixchel Suarez, Textile Artist and Keenan Reimer-Watts, Composer-musician, will be with their respective practices of weaving and piano improvisation for at least a 4 hour duration. You are invited to join in this event for as little or long as you like, coming and going as you wish, in silence. In light of the frenetic energy of the world, we wish to offer you a place to be still with us, and practice the art of being present, as well.



Canadian Tapestry and Texture Centre

OUR STORY The Canadian Tapestry and Texture Centre (CTTC). It was founded in 2015, as a natural extension to the Oakville Handweavers and Spinners Guild, the oldest Guild in Oakville, Ontario, founded in 1954. The CTTC explores tapestry through traditional and contemporary art forms. Texture is a property of artwork that makes you want to reach out and touch. Texture can be part of the surface or the result of the interplay of light and shadow. Texture has role in the creation of an image to the same extent as composition and colour; although it has been explored and studied to a far less degree.

OUR MISSION The Canadian Tapestry and Texture Centre is a non-profit educational organization. Our mission is to foster intellectual, social, physical, and emotional growth, connection and wellbeing through arts and culture. Facilitating welcoming intergenerational programs where individuals can exchange creative knowledge, celebrate cultural diversity and establish lasting connections within their own community.
