Our club was chartered in 1958 with us celebrating our 60th Anniversary in 2018.

The catalyst for the formation of the group being a night school program taught by Laurie Meggait. Since formation, the club has operated from a variety of locations including members garages, basements, and greenhouses. Our first permanent workshop was housed in the basement of the old ice arena. With the assistance of the municipality, the club moved to its present address on Fern Crescent adjoining the home of the artist in residence.

 

We are a family-oriented arts group with members of all ages who are encouraged to explore creativity using a wide range of media.
