Join Creativity Studio Artist Bethany Garner in making small cloth bags for the Tett Tree of Life. Fill these bags with notes that express your boundless love for the precious moments we share—where we learn, grow, and cherish being together! Bethany Garner is an expert in textiles and weaving, using fibre and stitch as her medium.

This activity is part of "Tett Tree of Life: An Interactive Adventure and Collective Showcase." Please check the "Other Events from this Organizer" below to find more information and discover additional activities to engage with Tett tenant organizations and studio artists in the building for this event. Together, we will create the Tett Tree of Life, visually representing our vibrant arts community.



Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning

The Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning (TCCL) is a not-for-profit corporation governed by an independent, community-based board, which is accountable to its membership: the City of Kingston as represented by Mayor and Council. Within its broader mission, the TCCL is mandated (and funded in part) by the City of Kingston to operate the City-owned J.K. Tett Centre as an accessible multi-use arts centre that supports cultural vitality throughout the region.

The J.K. Tett Centre is home to nine arts organizations (including the TCCL), eight Creativity Studio Artists, a beautiful waterfront café, and four multi-use rentable public spaces, including the Malting Tower, Rehearsal Hall, and Tett Gallery and Activity Room.

Together with our resident arts organizations, the TCCL is a thriving hub of artistic creation, learning and exchange that engages and inspires every part of our community. The TCCL offers many opportunities to immerse yourself in the arts, including classes, workshops, exhibitions, and building-wide open house events. It contributes to a vibrant arts community in Kingston by fostering collaboration among resident arts organizations.
