Co-presented with Sunshine Coast Fibreshed Society, this free, bi-monthly program held at the Arts Centre is an opportunity for students to rethink their relationship to textiles while developing practical skills and exploring how to become involved in positive and fun climate action. Over six months they will explore local fibres, experiment with dyeing from local plants and mushrooms, learn visible mending techniques, explore sustainable fashion trends and experiment with repurposing material. The programs ends with a professionally curated exhibition at the SC Arts Centre in Sechelt.

The Young Artists Awards & Exhibition (Grades 10-12)
The Young Artists Exhibition + Awards is our annual celebration of the creativity of young artists living on the Sunshine Coast. Each year we invite young artists to submit three works to be included in an exhibition at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt. This is a fantastic chance to share their creativity with the public, to receive feedback from professional working artists about their work, and to see their work installed in a professional gallery. The exhibition will be held from November 26 – December 11, 2021. We are particularly interested in seeing the creative expressions of our high school students. Each participant receives a gift to support continuing their creative work.
