Workshop Descriptions

Lantern Workshop

Help us fill the street with light and colour for the annual Kaleido Family Arts Festival by attending the lantern making workshop at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts and create your own unique lantern. Gabrielle deGouw, who has created lanterns for Glow festival and Ono Poke Co., will be leading the workshop to share her knowledge of lantern making with everyone.

Paper Making

Artist Julie Drew will teach you how to create your own beautiful handmade paper using century old techniques.

Artist Trading Cards

Kathleen Knack and Brandy Lindsay will guide you in creating your own unique art cards that can be traded or swapped with others either in person or online. Come use a variety of materials (including discarded library books, magazines and comics) to create an Artist Trading Card as unique as you! Hosted by Edmonton Public Libraries.

Indigenous Métis, Inuit Craft Demos & Workshops

Explore the fascinating Indigenous, Inuit, and Métis arts. Everyone welcome! Bannock will be served Saturday and Sunday. 

Chalk It Up Workshops

Join chalk artists: Alixandra Jade, Claire Lamb, Ryan Gustafson, Trina Lewis, and Triniti Chalcraft in the chalk creation and fun. Fill the Ave with your creative genius! Sidewalk chalk provided.

Hoola Hoola Hoop Workshops

Hoola Hoops will fill the Ave along with the opportunity to learn Hoola Hooping, young or old – with Aurora Flowz. Come have a hoola good time!

The commUNITY Mural

Students from Eastglen and Highlands School invite the patrons of the Kaleido festival to join them in creating a collaborative and interactive mural. The artwork that is being created is based on the concept of the community being visually represented as a circle. This project was inspired by the concentric circles found in the art of both Wassily Kandinsky and Chuck Close. The mural will double as a photo wall for people to capture their experience at the festival.
