We’re constantly looking for events for the creative and design community in Edmonton. Networking and getting involved in the community are essential to staying connected and sane, especially when you work from home. We’ve created a short and sweet list of events happening this month that we wanted to share with you. Be sure to mark your calendar and save the date!

Chopstick Making Workshop - Timbre Cowork

July 4, 2019 | 7:00pm | $75 | Timbre Co-work

What is it? This workshop lets you hang out with friends and learn how to create a pair of chopsticks with your own personal flair.
Why is it awesome? Why NOT learn how to make chopsticks?! Plus, you get to eat with the chopsticks right after you make them!

Whyte Ave Art Walk

June 5-7, 2019 | 10:00am–5:00pm | Free! | Whyte Ave from 101 Street to 108 Street

What is it? The Whyte Ave Art Walk is one of my favourite summer activities in Edmonton. You can start off by getting some ice cream from What’s the Scoop, Made by Marcus (Hopefully they’ll be open by then!) or Yelo’d and then strolling the streets of Whyte to check out all the local artists in the city!
Why is it awesome?
Checking out local art and enjoying sunshine, what more could you want?!

Why is it awesome? It’s an afternoon to mess around with printing presses and screen-printing machines!

Drop-in Weaving - Ferns School of Craft

July 21, 2019 | 11:00am–4:30pm | $125 | Sky Studio

What is it? This class is for people who would like to show up and get straight to work. No heavy theory, just sit down and weave fabric to sew into a cushion! Geared towards students with no experience, who want to drop in and test drive a loom without taxing their brains with complicated theory.
Why is it awesome? In a matter of hours you’ll have a lovely cushion cover to take home with you!

 

That’s all for now! Hopefully we’ll see you at a few of these events. If we missed one, or if you have any upcoming events in the summer that you’d like to share, feel free to connect. Another way to stay in the loop is by joining our YEG Designers Slack Group.
