|My three crows ready for the parade!|
A few days ago, we attended a free workshop at the Confederation Centre of the Art to make crow costumes and masks. It was a great creative process and we loved it.
There was a lot of materials to work with, all types of black fabric, masks, umbrellas, feathers, sticks, and more. We were told to take whatever we liked and make our own costumes and masks. We were show a few examples from the previous year and given some ideas. Here are a few photos from the workshop:
|Our table with the materials we picked|
|Adrienne took this leftover umbrella part and decorated it |
with lace, ribbons, and sticky red jewels.
|Celeste working on her walking stick.|
The crows fly to Victoria Park every evening and so the parade took us from the Confederation Centre to Victoria Park. We passed by several of the Art in the Open exhibits on our way. We made lots of noise and got a lot of attention!

Between holding my umbrella in one hand and my decorated stick in the other, I didn't take many photos of the Art in the Open, but here are a couple. The event was amazing and we didn't even see everything!
