Talking about Ted: Five Stories about a Local Artist

Wednesday December 5, 2018 | 6:30 pm

Hear five stories about local artist Ted Smith from some of those that knew him best – from his love of opera and fishing, his early years in Kamloops, his connection to the landscape, and diagnosis towards the end of his life.


KMA: Coffee & Crafts

Did you know that Kamloops is a Bee City? Local pollinators create beeswax, which can be used in so many different ways! Come hear about some of the benefits of beeswax and create a gift for yourself or someone special. Grab a friend for a day date at the museum with afternoon coffee (or tea!), treats, tunes, and crafting. These sessions of C&C will be the bees-knees!

Beeswax Wraps

Come hear about some of the benefits of beeswax and create eco-friendly beeswax wraps (that can be used instead of plastic wrap) for yourself or someone special. All supplies and treats included!
