Open during exhibition hours, the Inspiration Space features self-directed beading-themed activities for visitors of all ages. Join us at the community table to design a pattern on a bead loom, colour in a beadwork design, or work on your own beading project.

During July and August, the Inspiration Space will also feature a documentary film and resources related to the exhibition, Shelley Niro: 500 Year Itch. In addition, drop-in creative workshops for families will be offered daily during both months, led by one of the Gallery’s interpreters.

Workshops with guest artists will also be held in the Inspiration Space throughout the exhibition period. Stay tuned for more details, as well as information on how to register.
