There is a lot happening in Almonte this weekend (Nov 21-23), and some events require registration in advance, so here are the details.
ENJOY A PLAY! (and learn some local history)
Tickets are selling quickly for the last 2 performances of The Dirt on Tait McKenzie (7:30pm Friday & Saturday). Director Thora Pugh and writer Fern Martin present a play about the life of R. Tait McKenzie. We won’t tell you anything about Tait, because we don’t want to spoil the play for you! Tickets ($20, $10 student) are available at Baker Bob’s.
TAKE A CLASS!
Contact Acanthus Floral & Botanicals to register for their Outdoor Winter Arrangements workshop, offered on either Saturday, Sunday or Monday (Nov 24).
GET SOME “ME”TIME!
See your aura this Saturday. Yes — see it! Patrick Godin uses AuraCloud 3D technology to show you your aura. Contact Soul Scents to sign up for a 30-minute session ($65). You will get a printed report with an interpretation of your energetic system (approx. 17 pgs), aura and chakra photos, a personal consultation. You are encouraged to bring along any items you would like to test to see the impact on your energy field.
LEARN ABOUT TEXTILES FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD!
Saturday (2-4pm) is your last chance to see the much talked about exhibit from Japan — Reiko Sudo & NUNO — at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, with a talk by guest curator Alan Elder. Event admission is by donation.
WELCOME THE NEW GALLERY TO TOWN!
Saturday, from 3-6pm, drop by the Grand Opening of Sivarulrasa Studio & Gallery in the Thoburn Mill. Meet owner and artist Sanjeev Sivarulrasa, check out what he’s done with the space, enjoy a snack, and see his photographic works and oil paintings, which explore human awareness of the cosmos and our deep connection to nature.
SEE ART & FASHION!
Diane Lemire will showcase her famously beautiful and eclectic wearable art and other fibre/felt work at General Fine Craft, Art & Design on Sunday, from 1-3pm. Admire the scarves and neckpieces as the models wander in the casual atmosphere.
