Carpentry For Women

27500361_1251359541630446_5866666386090841439_o.jpg

Have you ever wanted to tackle a carpentry project but don’t know quite where to start? Are you looking to gain more confidence with power tools?

The Carpentry for Women workshop creates a friendly, inviting space for women who would like to learn the basics of carpentry. In the comfort of a women-only space, experienced carpenters Jen Feigin and Deirdre McGahern will introduce you to the world of measuring, marking and layout, hand and power tools.

Over two days, you will gain confidence in basic carpentry as you work on a take-home project. There will be plenty of time to practice with tools and to become familiar with the terminology. You’ll learn about tool safety, how to choose and buy tools, selecting and purchasing materials for projects, making sketches for projects and choosing non-toxic, healthy finishes.

Small group learning affords lots of time to develop skills and confidence, ask questions and discuss ideas.

Each participant will construct and bring home a pair of unique folding saw horses that can be used as a work platform for future projects or as a base for a desk!

Brent’s friend, Jake Stanley, another promising young local man, lost his life to suicide in 2015.

Therefore, one third of the funds raised at the tournament will be directed to the Lakefield Chief’s, Brent’s home team, while the remaining proceeds will be directed to two C.M.H.A. H.K.P.R endeavors, Lynx, an early psychosis program for youth and Team55 Let’s Tackle Suicide Prevention.

Make a Beaded Puzzle Pouch

24313209_1754392184594363_6646827387856526704_o.jpg

A puzzle pouch is a traditional style of leather pouch that can be a bit of a ‘puzzle’ to get into. Using the friction of strips of leather fed through little slits in the flap this clever closure method keeps your valuables securely hidden inside, and at first glance it can seem like there is no opening to get them out! 

Make your own puzzle pouch with the guidance of expert instructor, Andy Bullock*. Choose your own, unique design and embellish your pouch with beautiful glass seed beads. Learn about sewing leather and traditional beading while you spend the day in the Museum’s Preserving Skills Gallery. 

No previous beading experience needed, but here is some manual dexterity required to stitch one bead at a time. 

Member Price: $99
Non-Member Price: $110

Peterborough Garden Show

PGS-logo-small.jpg

The Peterborough Garden Show will be back once again for its 18th year from April 13 – 15, 2018 (Friday 5-9pm, Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 10am-4pm).

The theme "Come Grow With Us" has an emphasis on sustainability and growing food as reflected in the list of speakers & topics. This year, in addition to speakers, there will be a series of hands-on workshops presented by the Peterborough & Area Master Gardeners.

New this year will be a Celebrity and Florist Design Competition. Teams of a local celebrity and florist designer will each create a dress made up of flowers, vegetables and herbs. The creation will take place Friday evening and they will all be on display for “people’s choice” voting throughout the weekend.

Filling both ice pads of the Evinrude Centre will be more than 130 garden vendors, many of them new. Clearwater Creations will create a display garden at the entrance to one of the pads.

Upstairs, the ever-popular "Little Green Thumbs" Children's Garden will be teaming with liveliness and action! Children will be involved in learning activities as well as face painting, crafts, making a floral take-home and visiting all of the activity centres. 

BE Catering will again be providing a delicious range of meal and snack choices.  Kyoto Coffee has a new line of tasty, healthy smoothies to add to their locally roasted fair trade coffees.

Profits from the show go back to the community each year and continue to fund various local projects & Community Gardens, and also a number of post-secondary scholarships for students studying in horticulture-related fields.

We hope you will join us and "Come Grow With Us" this year. More details on bus trips, places to stay, tickets, speakers & workshops and contact information can be found at peterboroughgardenshow.com

cost: $8 advance, $9 online, $10 at the door

Tuesday, April 3, 2018
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Evinrude Centre, Banquet Hall, 911 Monaghan Road

City of Peterborough Media Release

Major Sport and Event Centre Public Consultation

The City of Peterborough is studying the feasibility of building a new multi-use sport and event centre in the City. The study is being conducted in two phases, with an initial review of market opportunities to replace the existing Peterborough Memorial Centre and a second phase including a more detailed assessment of potential site locations, concept design and financial implications of investing in a new facility. The public is invited to join our consultants for an information session:

The purpose of the meeting is to provide background to the work:

  • What is a feasibility study?

  • Why is an experienced and multi-disciplinary consulting team needed?

  • What is the process of this study (Phase 1 and Phase 2) and what might the

    subsequent process look like?

  • What outputs are likely and what impacts may arise?

    We want to hear your opinion on the project and the merits of a new venue. In addition, what ideal locations should be considered in developing a new multi-use sport and entertainment complex in or around Downtown Peterborough?

    The consulting team led by Sierra Planning and Management will provide a presentation and facilitate a general discussion of results of the study so far and the issues and choices facing the City as a result of the analysis. The Study has been underway for several months and details of the process can be found on the City of Peterborough website www.Peterborough.ca under “Business/Studies & Projects”.

    This information is also on our City of Peterborough website (www.peterborough.ca). - 30 -

This is an event for owners and those fostering dogs to get out and enjoy a walk with other dogs and humans. This event is for all dogs regardless of behaviour problems, so please don't feel like you need to leave your dog at home! I just ask that he or she be muzzled for the safety of the other dogs and humans. And since this event is open to all dogs, please don't allow your dog to meet any of the other participants, they might not appreciate a strange dog walking up to them. 

We will meet at Del Crary park, and take advantage of some of the amazing trails downtown Peterborough has to offer! I will go over some tips for teaching your dog to walk on a loose leash as well as the tools I prefer to use, and why I use
them. 

There is absolutely no extendible or flexi leashes allowed for this event! Please have your dog in a standard 4 or 6 foot leash. All other training tools are permitted as long as they are being used responsibly. 

**This is a FREE event**
