First Saturdays – Spoon Carving with Inuk Artist Barry Best

July 6 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

$13.20 – $18.00

Inuk artist Barry Best carves wood from the Village’s fallen trees into beautiful spoons and talks about his upcoming installation at The Village, Spirit Wind, a reflection on the shared similarities among all living things.

Barry Best is a Toronto based Indigenous artist who has crafted elegant and engaging pieces for over a decade. Between his carvings, photography and videography, Barry has tied his relationship as an Indigenous artist and forester together through eco based projects to help shed light on the importance of sustainability in our environment. His battle with mental health is deep within his art and manifests itself in bright beautiful colours and engaging structures, inviting the public to be a part of his journey of healing.

Participation is included with admission to the Village.
