Your guide, a local artist, will welcome you to the unique community of Pinawa. You’ll be guided on a trail walk and forage for art materials on the beautiful Ironwood, a section of the TransCanada Trail along the Winnipeg River, an important trade and travel route.

Be inspired as the artist demonstrates artistic inspiration and practice, highlighting two historically important women artists, one from a colonial perspective and the other indigenous.

Listen to stories of these two women and get a glimpse into what life was like as a female artist. Engage in the inspiration that artists discover in the Boreal Forest and the Winnipeg River. Later enjoy a snack of bannock and wild harvested tea. Let your creativity flow using your foraged materials to create a one-of-a-kind art piece that you get to take home.

For your comfort during this experience, wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and walking on a gentle gravel path. Washrooms are available at the gallery and on the trail. Take as many photos or videos as your spirit moves you. Nature will inspire you at every turn.


  • The workshop must have a minimum of 4 people registered to run and up to 10 people maximum.
