Take a break, and come create!

Every second Tuesday of the month, we invite you to join us at the Tett Centre for Creativity + Learning for an evening of creativity, conversation, connection and community.

Tett Tuesdays is an opportunity to carve out time for monthly art-making, while working alongside, and getting to know aspiring, emerging, and professional artists and artisans in the Kingston community. We invite participants to bring their own chosen project and art materials and enjoy a relaxed and casual atmosphere. We encourage you to explore your creative-side at your own leisure. 

Bring your own supplies - all art mediums welcome. Painting, knitting, drawing, collage, printmaking, embroidery, jewellery, sculpture, mixed media, you name it. It’s the perfect place to ask and give constructive feedback, engage in peer support, meet new people, and share knowledge, techniques, and ideas! All skill levels + abilities are welcome from beginner to accomplished. 18+
