Summer Workshops Series
Join us for a variety of in-person workshops led by WDM staff. Everything from how to garden to learning about various communication styles.
Workshop dates and times vary by location. Attendance will be restricted to small groups and COVID-19 protocols will be in place to ensure participant safety.
*Pre-Registration is required*
|Gardening in Saskatchewan
Explore plants native to Saskatchewan and some of the insects that visit our gardens like butterflies, dragonflies, and fireflies. Workshop activities include:
Learn the history and the art of wheat weaving in Saskatchewan, then create your own basic wheat weaving creations.
|Cabinet of Curiosities
A family-friendly workshop where participants learn about Cabinet of Curiosities and how it connects to modern-day museums including the Western Development Museum.
Bring 5 of your own small items to create your own mini artifact display or “portable museum in a book.”
|History of Gender Roles in Rock N Roll
Girls Rock Saskatoon Partnership
The WDM and Girls Rock Saskatoon have come together to highlight Rock N Roll history. This high-energy workshop will get you moving and leave you inspired to learn more about music history – and perhaps dreaming about one day being a part of that history yourself.
|Camping & Exploring Saskatchewan
Connect families with history by exploring what being outdoors in the summer was like throughout the last 100 years and comparing that to how we spend time with nature today.
|Communication is Key
Learn about communication in the early 20th century, specifically hand-written letters and postcards and telegraphy.
