Honeycomb Flag Workshop
Fibre & textile arts
Work together, just like bees in a colony, to create a honeycomb flag from cast-off clothing in this two-day participatory creation event. Transform thrift store fabrics into hexagonal patches and contribute to our flag, which will be flown from the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre's flagpole for the remainder of Culture Days month. This flag making activity is inspired by the work of artist Aganetha Dyck, whose Mennonite heritage and its emphasis on thrift is a source of inspiration for her artwork in which she commonly gives new life to broken and discarded items. Those wishing to attend this in-person event must register in advance for a free ticket, wear a mask and observe social distancing. Attendance at in-person events is limited to 50%of normal capacity. The Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre requires that all visitors to the building wear a mask and provide proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test.
This event is free.
Art Gallery of Regina
Located on Treaty 4, the traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota, Lakota and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Métis people, the Art Gallery of Regina (AGR) promotes the development and appreciation of contemporary art, with an emphasis on Saskatchewan artists. Our programming focuses on the voices and experiences of Saskatchewan artists and visitors. AGR programming encompasses exhibitions (featuring established, emerging and recreational artists), education, publishing, workshops and artists talks. Through free public exhibitions and dedicated support for artists and innovation, the AGR has over 45 years as a supportive and creative cultural hub connecting artists and our communities. The Art Gallery of Regina is an autonomous, independent public art gallery with non-profit and charitable status. We are a tenant in the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre located within the vibrant Cathedral Village neighbourhood in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The Gallery opened as an experimental satellite of the Norman Mackenzie Gallery in 1974 under the name Rosemont Art Gallery. The Rosemont's objective was to reach new audiences and respond to community demands for more local and regional programming. In 1976 an independent organization formed and incorporated as a non-profit society to take over the Gallery. In 2005, after 30 years in operation, the name was changed to the Art Gallery of Regina to better reflect its scope and role in the community. The Art Gallery of Regina is at 2420 Elphinstone Street, inside the Neil Balkwill Civic Art Centre . The facility is entirely wheelchair accessible
