We turn pieces of our own education experience into beautiful keepsakes, such as candle holders, signs and decorations. Stunning carved goods by local artists from the Quinte region are also available. Look for these unique items at our next community event!

A kanga is a colourful cloth, worn by women and occasionally by men throughout the African Great Lakes region.
