Craft Labrador is hosting a craft product development workshop for Point Amour Lighthouse Provincial Historic Site. The product development workshop will begin with a tour of the lighthouse and surrounding site on Saturday September 23rd, to be followed by creative workshops to design craft products that would be of interest to visitors who come here. The creative workshops will take place 4 to 6 weeks after the tour. The schedule for those workshops will be determined by the group participating in the tour on September 23rd.
The site tour on September 23rd will be held from 10 Am to 4 Pm at the Heritage Centre at Point Amour in the Labrador Straits. Lunch will be provided.
In the follow-up workshops we will consider how to create crafts that will reflect some part of a visitor’s experience of their visit to Point Amour and the surrounding area. We will use our skills and experience to experiment with materials to create new designs. We will discuss pricing and marketing at the end of the workshops. Our workshop is for individuals who already have some experience making crafts.
As part of the product development workshop, we will have a separate activity for youth who are interested in learning a new skill. This will be advertised at a later date.
We have a limited number of spaces in the workshop, so we are asking people who are interested to fill out an application. All applicants will receive a message confirming whether they are participants or on the wait list.
