Feature Events


Culture Days Lumen Print Workshop (8+ yrs)

Celebrate Culture Days across Canada by participating in our free, family-friendly art activity with artist Phyllis Schwartz. Phyllis will lead participants through this hands-on lumen print workshop.  A lumen print is essentially a solar photogram – a camera-less process involving black and white photographic paper – a subject matter that usually (but not always) consists of an organic material, and of course, the most important element – The Sun.  During this workshop attendees will work with 2 pieces of 8×10 lumin paper (one to keep and one for display) and organic materials to create their own unique lumen print. Registration is required as space is limited please visit for more information. Max 20 participants
