Second Annual Halifax Skillshare Series

Friday May 1 2009

Venue: Roberts Street Social Centre (all workshops)
Address: 5684 Roberts Street (off Agricola).
Cost: Free

It’s time for the second Skillshare Workshop Series!

Skillshare Workshops demonstrate arts and crafts skills, as instructors lead participants through an activity. This hands-on approach allows for accessible and fun sharing of information with a concrete goal and result at the end of the class. Taught by both local Haligonians and special guests who are part of our residency program, instructors have been invited to share their expertise, interests, and passions, and the schedule covers an amazing range of topics!

No experience is necessary for any of the workshops, and all ages are welcome. Workshops are free, and all supplies are provided.
All workshops are free to the public, and all supplies will be provided. They are held at the Roberts Street Social Centre, 5684 Roberts Street (off Agricola).
