The Individualized Community Inclusion Program wishes to extend a huge thank you to the Revelstoke Arts Council for their very generous donation of art supplies! With these donations, all the individuals at the ICIP were able to make a beautiful silk scarf to send to a loved one for Christmas…and they all turned out amazing!
As well, we were able to make 120 Christmas cards with more of the painted silk which were then sold at the Handmade Parade in November. Every single card sold and we raised over $600 to use towards future activities!!
It was a very rewarding, creative and fun experience for everyone involved and we hope we will have future opportunities to do more art workshops in 2012!
We would like to also express our sincere gratitude to Jackie Pendergast for all her tireless work arranging the workshops, as well as organizing the sale of the cards at the craft fair! Without her, all of this would not have been possible and we shall be forever thankful.
