Upcoming at Cranbrook Arts
Cranbrook Arts is excited to be participating in the Shop till you Drop Eat till you Pop Event hosted by the Downtown Business Association on May 4.
At our store we will be having our fabulous potter Edith Lydell set up her wares on the sidewalk. In our alley garden space, in the back of our shop, Randy Tapp will be performing on our stage. Also, come and show your artistic side and paint in one of the footprints on our banner “Creative Footprint” that we will hang across Baker Street after the event!
For the Month of Mothers Day:
OUR ASK: With Mothers day coming up we are asking citizens of Cranbrook to help us build a ‘Wisdom Window.’ We are seeking people to submit words of wisdom form their mothers. We will then write these words of wisdom in hearts to be displayed in our window display called a Wisdom Window to honour Mothers day on May 12.
TO SUBMIT WISDOM: Go on our Facebook Page or Instagram and leave a comment or better yet come in the store and write it on the hearts that we have in the shop.
