Creative Thursdays are a great way to explore art techniques on selected Thursday evenings. Drop in for demonstrations by working artists, and get creative yourself!

Join us for the last Creative Thursday of the season, as we welcome artist and silversmith Erin Wallace for an activity inspired by works of silver on view in the Canadian and Indigenous Galleries.

Participants will learn about the materials and techniques involved in metal embossing. They will then be invited to try it themselves by engraving their own low-relief designs on small sheets of metal, using a variety of embossing instruments.

All materials and tools provided. This activity is intended for beginners and experts alike. 

Demonstrations begin at 6 and 7 pm.

Free admission.
