Postponed: With the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff in mind, and in light of recommendations from the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health, Fanshawe Pioneer Village will be closed to the public Monday, March 16th until Tuesday, April 7th, 2020. Please check the Fanshawe Pioneer Village website and social media channels for updates on when the Village will re-open as the COVID-19 situation evolves.

Join Fanshawe Pioneer Village and The Arbour’s Attic for History + Sign Design on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020!

Signs demonstrate personality and their owners individuality, now and in the past. Create a sign of your own, based around the theme of ‘Home,’ to add a bit of personal flair to your living space! Check out the sign options to find the one that speaks to you.

Pick one of The Arbour’s Attic’s carefully curated sign options. No artistic ability necessary, all supplies provided; paint and stain chosen the evening of the event. Britteny will walk you through the steps to complete you wood sign– the perfect piece to add to your home.

Limited spots available, advanced registration required.

Presented in partnership with The Arbour’s Attic. Hosted in our modern Trillium Community Gallery.
