Honouring and sharing traditional teachings and elements of Native culture, as well as connections to the earth, are important components of this workshop. Jackie Labonte and Bill Russ will guide you and share the traditions and teachings of a 13 Moon Hand Drum Workshop!
The workshop begins with an opening ceremony, led by Jackie and Bill, then you will create your own 13-sided white pine hand drum. Participants are encouraged to work together to create their drum.
Suitable for ages 16 and up, this small, hands-on workshop is limited to 25 participants. The cost of $39 per person includes all drum-making supplies. Pre-registration is required, and can be done through phone, email, or in person at the St. Catharines Museum.
Pack a picnic lunch and join us for some old-fashioned fun with the Dominion Day Picnic on the grounds of the Museum. Meet historic characters while sharing in the experience of the first Dominion Day in 1879-era St. Catharines.
While meeting with characters from St. Catharines’ past, visitors can watch for the 1812 Tall Ships Tour travelling from Port Dalhousie through the Welland Canal. Children and adults alike can join in the fun and games with three-legged races, tug-of-war, bean-bag toss, and egg and spoon races. The always popular face painting and temporary tattoos will also be available onsite.
The City of St. Catharines Recreation and Community Services department joins the celebration with activities and program demos of this year’s Leisure Guide offerings. These demonstrations and activities will take place all day in Discovery Park, adjacent to the Museum.
