hands on is the best
If your idea of a wonderful afternoon or night out includes exercising your creative muscle, look no further. Lloydminster is brimming with opportunities to get your hands dirty – literally.
The Lloydminster Museum + Archives’ unique, in-person classes and programming are specifically designed for groups of one, two, or a few. You’ll dabble in a world filled with pottery, paint, pastels, and more as you try your hand at their table. Birthday parties and special events are hosted on the regular, so be sure to connect with museum staff to share your vision. Contact information is listed in the directory at the end of this section.
Enjoy a pattern? If you love all things fabric, needles, and knots, you’ll find your happy place at Country Quilts and Stitches, Sew in Tune, and Fabricland. You’ll be mesmerized by the reams of fabric, layers of tulle, and everything in between. These local businesses employ passionate, knowledgeable staff, many of whom can connect you with pockets of sewers and creators based on your particular interests. If you love quilting, we encourage you to connect with Lloydminster Quilter’s Guild to learn more about their quilting events, retreats, and more.
Flora and fauna alike are celebrated at The Cheesiry, located just minutes outside Lloydminster near Kitscoty, AB. One of The Cheesiry’s business extensions is affectionately known as Coulee Creations. Each summer, the sights and smells of the season burst on the scene in the flower gardens at the farm. Coulee Creations offers popular “u-pick” events where individuals and groups can gather to try their hand at bouquet and centerpiece making. For those who prefer the intimacy of an indoor space, be sure to check out Flowers on the Fly by Audina. This local entrepreneur is known to host make-it-yourself evenings for small and medium-sized groups, with each event often planned around a holiday-themed arrangement, basket, or display.
