Make holiday gems for your tree at Reflections fest in Coquitlam

Coquitlam's Place des Arts ends its Reflections Festival on Sunday, Dec. 5 with free craft-making sessions for families.

You can made snow angels out of Victorian-era lyrics and text or bend pipe cleaners and beads to create icicle tree ornaments on Sunday (Dec. 5) at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts.

The Maillardville arts hub is inviting the public for a free holiday event from 1 to 4 p.m. as part of its three-week-long annual Reflections Festival, which also ends on Dec. 5.

Place des Arts instructor Catherine Dumaine will lead the snow angels and icicle ornaments sessions for the family-friendly festivities, while artist Clarissa Banos will show you how to decorate two kinds of lanterns for participants to take home.

A Port Coquitlam resident, Dumaine has been teaching fibre art in Metro Vancouver since 2007.

And Banos emigrated from El Salvador to New Westminster in 2001, where she now plies her craft that focuses on traditional Latin American folklore.

Reflections is funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
