Join Saskatchewan Craft Council artist Dale Lowe for a demonstration of woodturning! Watch the artist at work and learn about the evolution of woodworking tools and techniques.

A Regina-based woodturning artist whose work is strongly influenced by his Saskatchewan roots, Dale’s work reflects the colours, textures and architecture of the rural and urban spaces in which he has lived and the prairie farm environment in which he was raised.

Dale’s work is in private collections across Canada, Mexico and Dubai and was recently included as part of a gift from The Government of Canada to Queen Elizabeth II.

Get inspired to touch and engage with art in a unique and intimate way! Better lathe than never!

Studio Camera

Studio CameraOriginally owned by John B. Townsend who operated a photography studio at 1826 Hamilton Street from 1914 to 1932, this studio camera and its wooden case went through a succession of owners and was still in use by photographer Ed McCann when purchased by the museum in 1988. It took pictures of Regina residents for over 70 years.

Trivia

The first camera for amateur use was the Kodak, developed by George Eastman in 1888. This important invention established photography as one of the most groundbreaking innovations of the 19th century.
