The Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society is hosting its third annual Earth Friendly Holiday Event at the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Centre next week.
Water and Waste Wise liaison Brianna van de Wijngaard is inviting the community to drop by to work with local naturalists and artists on creating crafty, recycled, natural holiday decorations for yourself, your family, and your home!
Working with Scout Island naturalists participants will create beautiful cedar bough wreaths, bird feeders, ornaments, and cards.
“Work with the Conservation Society to create beautiful evergreen wreaths from natural boughs or everlasting ones from garden plants, cone angels, birch bark bird houses, tree ornaments and recycled ‘mini-trees’. Working with Scout Island naturalists create bird feeders, art and bird cards.” There will be opportunities to make clay ornaments with the Cariboo Potters Guild members; yarn ‘God’s eyes’ on willow branches with the Williams Lake Weavers, Spinners, and Fiber artists; gift tags with Potato House leaders; and pressed Christmas cards with the Cariboo Art Society members.
The Williams Lake Community Arts Council is arranging for live music to be playing and it is all free of charge, van de Wijngaard says.
All supplies will be provide as well as light goodies and beverages. The event takes place Friday, Nov. 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
