ALL HANDS IN!
Unveil Your Creative Expression
Whether your creativity is best expressed with a brush or knitting needs in hand, Lloydminster is rife with opportunity to hone your talent. If you love crafting and creating, be sure to check out the many “maker events” hosted in the Border City. From special classes taught at The Collective Art Market and the Lloydminster and Cultural & Science Centre (think: jewellery making, watercolour painting, and calligraphy) to crafting evenings held at Olive & Birch and Rolling Green Fairways, your passion for creativity will certainly be satisfied. If you’re looking for more “how-to” instructional courses are often facilitated by the Lloydminster Learning Council Association and Lakeland College. In the past, classes have included how to use Photoshop, photography basics, creative writing, and more. When you’re ready to frame your masterpiece (literally), may we recommend stopping by Art & Soul Framing and Gallery? Located in the bustling Rendell Centre, this charming boutique is a combination of a custom framing studio, jewellery and glassware gallery, and consultation space. The award-winning staff are prepared to listen to your desires and frame your piece, whether it’s a sports jersey, your own artwork, or a family heirloom.
For the young and the young at heart, may we recommend a trip to Art Soul Life Creative Studio? A newcomer to the Border City, this charming space is a veritable haven for all who love to paint and create. They host regular paint nights, special events (think: Paint Late Date Night), and can accommodate birthday parties and corporate gatherings. With a large selection of pottery, figurines, and dishware for you to paint, you’ll spend hours diligently perfecting your treasures. Another great venue to discover is the Dream Forest, owned by Startup Lloydminster (formerly known as the Regional Business Accelerator). Designed to foster creative thought, host brainstorming sessions, or simply provide a workspace away from home, the Dream Forest honours the creative process for business professionals, writers, designers, and more.
