Want to Share your Passion?

Organized for seniors, by seniors, the Creative Hands On Festival will be an opportunity for retirees to pass along the craft or hobby they are so passionate about to others. The festival will preserve and promote hand craft skills and hobbies allowing retirees and the general public to learn something new or refresh an old favourite pastime. There will be demonstrations, so one can learn what a craft is about. There will be hands on activities where one can try out a craft. There will be short classes at which one can learn a new skills and create something to take home. Everyone will discover all the different craft groups available to join in the area. The festival is not for profit and therefore has free admission and is free for artisans and groups to participate.



You could help by supervising
a Hands On Activity.

We now need retirees to volunteer

There is a need for retirees who like to organize, spread the word, demonstrate a craft skill, man a table, hand out programs or do a small but important job.

This volunteering opportunity will appeal to those retirees who are passionate about a craft or hobby and want to pass it along to others. The project provides training in how to provide social media for community organizations and teaching skills related to craft instruction. There is value in this volunteering opportunity.  It will bring retirees together helping each other, increasing socializing, stimulating body and mind, all of which makes retirement life fun and invigorating.

Not retired?  You are still more than welcome to participate and volunteer.
