If your creative language is best spoken through your hands, you’ll discover plenty to keep them busy in Lloydminster. Start in the world of textiles. A number of local businesses and groups, including Country Quilts and Stitches, Lloydminster Log Cabin Quilter’s Guild, Fabricland, and Sew in Tune offer on-site classes ranging from beginner to expert, and everything in between. For the junior set, we suggest taking a trip to Create a Friend. This business is a division of Art Soul Life Creative Studio and encourages children to build their own plush friend from start to finish, including selecting the shape, stuffing, outfit, colours, and even sounds. Speaking of Art Soul Life Creative Studio, while you’re exploring their Create a Friend location we recommend heading over to their pottery and painting space. Designed for small, medium, and large groups, patrons can indulge their creative side by selecting, painting, glazing, then baking their treasures.
For those who love a spinning wheel and the smell of clay, take a gander at what’s happening with the Lloydminster Potters Guild. This passionate group of makers operates out of the Lloydminster
Cultural & Science Centre and is always looking for new members. Their wares can be seen for sale at local boutiques and during special events like the City of Lloydminster’s annual Jingle Bell Artisan Market. Connect with them online for details regarding membership, classes, meet-ups, and more.
