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!

Polly in yellow dress

Polly in yellow dressThis beautiful doll is made of fine china, with brown hair, a yellow bonnet, and eyes that could open and close. Her yellow organdy dress is adorned with a black velvet ribbon decorated with pink flowers. White stockings and black boots complete her outfit.
This toy doll was donated to the museum in 1982 by Charles Morton.

Trivia

The popularity of elaborate fashion dolls such as Polly necessitated a need for experts to repair them. Beginning in the 1830’s several “doll hospitals” opened across Europe. These employed specialists who could fix the beloved toys.
