How to get to Ponemah Beach Central Art Centre

Ponemah is one of the Winnipeg Beaches. It’s snuggled in along Lake Winnipeg’s western shoreline along with Whytwold and Matlock. The three,collectively are referred to as Dunnotar. Gracious old cottages line the lakeshore and surroundings. The Ponemah Beach Central is an old train station that was refurbished into Art Centre and museum that is reminiscent of the early nineteen hundreds. A perfect spot to learn the ancient art of wet felting!

Only 45 minutes north from Winnipeg, along hwy9.

MITTENS  WORKSHOP on August 10th 2019.

HAND felted mittens are the warmest mitts you’ll ever have on your hands. I will show you how to make a resist which also acts as a pattern. Soft, cosy, and wind proof, they are also water resistant, so snow ball fights won’t leave you with soggy hands.

If you’d rather, you can design and make yourself a pair of ultra cool fingerless gloves. Don’t be fooled by these dishy little accessories, they are very functional as well as HIP!
