Maple Ridge Culture Walk: Exploring our nature

On Sunday, June 4 from 1 – 4 pm, join me and fellow City of Maple Ridge Artist-in-Residence Kat Wahamaa in creating a nature mandala in near Cliff Falls in Kanaka Creek Regional Park.

Kat and I will have all the materials on hand, from rocks and leaves to colourful wildflowers. We’ll be inviting passers-by to help us place the materials to form a large circular mandala. We’ll be improvising, so bring your sense of play and imagination!

The ephemeral artwork is part of the City of Maple Ridge’s Culture Walk: Exploring our Nature event, which links art, culture and nature at the following sites: Kanaka Creek Regional Park (at both the Cliff Falls trails and at the waterfront), the Maple Ridge Museum, Haney House, and the Bell Irving Fish Hatchery. A free shuttle bus will connect the parks, the museum and Haney House.
