Tool-making Workshops

April 2017

The Iqaluit Action Lab is hosting two traditional tool-making workshops in April. These workshops are offered for free for adults over 19 years, and participation will be determined by lottery.

Matthew Alainga will lead an ulu-making workshop on Saturday April 22, 2017 held from 10am-6pm. Twelve people will make their own stainless steel ulus.

Looty Pijamini will lead a qulliq-making workshop during the evenings of Monday April 24 to Friday April 28, 2017 from 6:00-9:00pm. Fifteen participants will make their own stone qulliq.

Interested residents should register their name before Thursday April 20 at 5pm. Be sure to specify interest in either ulu or qulliq workshop, and ensure you leave contact information. The lucky participants will have their names drawn from a hat and will be announced on Facebook on April 20 at 6pm.

There are three (3) ways to register: send a text to 223-0290, leave a comment on our Facebook page (Canada 150 Iqaluit), or send an email to [email protected].

These workshops are a part of Canada150 celebrations, thanks to funding from the Government of Canada.
