Celebrate Labour Day Weekend with a behind-the-scenes tour of union banners from our permanent collection, followed by a banner-making workshop for youth and adults 12 and up led by special guest artists!

Join WAHC's Program Coordinator, Tara Bursey, as she leads you through a selection of 20th century union banners from the permanent collection of the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre. This informative, up-close collection tour will unpack the materials, symbols, unions and workers represented by these rare and exquisite pieces of workers' heritage. Come learn and see how cloth serves as both a powerful vehicle and metaphor for collectivity.

Following the tour, stick around for a hands-on banner making workshop for youth and adults facilitated by special guest artists. Use inspiration from historic banners towards the creation of your own empowering Labour Day mini-banner using techniques such as screenprinting, embroidery and iron-on transfers. All materials will be provided!
