Folk Arts

webbs machinery 2017.jpg

We honour and celebrate the courageous immigrations of the Ukrainian people to Canada.  


Stop into the Folk Arts venue to view displays and demonstrations of beautiful and interesting instruments, embroidery, pysanky, linens, clothing and much more--many of which are over 100 years old.  

Our Folk Arts venue: 

  • teaches people new to our heritage about the Ukrainian ways of cultural expression

  • stirs fond memories of your past

  • teaches present individuals unsure of their past Ukrainian history


These things were shown through their work and dress clothes, the ways they adorned and showed individual talents and the ingenuity through design using materials available locally through their mostly agricultural based pioneer life.  

The tools, methods of production and manufacture from the past are the showcase in respect of the many harsh conditions which forged the hearts and spirits associated with Ukrainian heritage and background.  This now flourishes here in Canada; while others have tried for centuries to divide and suppress this culture.  We present a range of topics in any given year and you can expect to see a wide range of presentations through as many years, going into the future.
