Canada’s Ontario Culture Days has teamed up with Craft Ontario to encourage craft makers to offer FREE hands-on craft activities to the public during the Culture Days weekend that launches on September 25-27, 2015. More than 150 FREE craft activities are offered across the province.

“The public will be invited into the workshops of these makers, and in many cases they will be encouraged to roll up their sleeves and try a variety of craft techniques for themselves, learning directly from accomplished artisans for FREE. Come find out why making crafts is the most popular creative activity engaged in by the general public and possibly fall in love with a new past time.”
