Once again the Almonte Potter’s Guild and the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum are teaming up to offer an exciting, creative full day March Break Camp. After the success of this partnership last year, these two organizations are joining forces again. Spring is the inspiration behind the many interesting crafts and projects that kids will participate in.

Five full days of creativity with many projects and activities will keep kids inspired and engaged. A small group will ensure that each child is able to work at their own pace. Skilled potters from the Potter’s Guild will guide kids through the processes of hand building and wheel throwing. They will construct animals from clay and try mask making as well. At the Textile Museum, kids will dye their own wool for a felting project, decorate an umbrella, make nests, and learn to make and use their own spool knitter. This year is the first time that the campers will be able to make use of the fabulous new Education Room in the upstairs gallery.

The camp will also include a supervised heritage walking tour of Almonte from the Potter’s Guild to the Textile Museum at lunch each day.

The hours of the camp are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with drop off at the Potter’s Guild and pick up at the Textile Museum.

The ages are 8-12.

The total cost for each child is $250.

Please call 613 256 3754 by March 6 to reserve a spot in the camp.
