Program Runs Thursdays | 7:00-9:00 pm

Galt Workshops, a hands-on history series for adults launched in 2011 at the Galt Museum & Archives, resumes March 8 with a soup and bread making workshop, learning how to make paper, and growing native plants.

 “The upcoming programs are connected to our current exhibit Earth’s Climate in the Balance, as they offer ways we can reduce our carbon footprint,” says Leslie Hall, Community Program Coordinator for the Galt. “We’ll provide all the supplies, and encourage participants to share their new or improved talents with their friends!”

 Thu MAR 08 Back-to-Basics Food Come join Lethbridge Personal Chefs for a back-to-basics soup and bread cooking class. Vegetarian option available. 

Thu MAR 22 Handmade Paper in partnership with the Textile Surface Design Guild Susan Kristoferson presents a lively slide lecture of amazing, sophisticated paper arts and brings unique paper samples she has collected over 25 years. Then get your hands into pulp to make your own! You will create multi-layer papers, and “pulp paint” to create images in your sheets of paper. 

Thu MAY 03 Planting our Past, Preserving our Future pt 2: Growing Native Plants Horticulturalist June Flanagan shares her knowledge on propagating and caring for plants native to this region. Using seeds saved from the Native Prairie Plant Garden at the Galt you’ll take home your own plants to start your garden.
