Hungry woodworkers are welcome at the Grist Mill this Fathers Day, June 16.
The Keremeos Grist Mill and Gardens is hosting a pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. until noon, and from 11 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. the gardens will be dedicated to whittlers, woodcrafters and whirligiggers.
The “everything made out of wood” theme compliments the Grist Mill’s own architecture and make up. Visitors can revel in wooden artifacts available for viewing at the site, at the same time having the opportunity to observe the skill and artistry of those who work in wood with axe, chainsaw, froe, chisels, knives, saws, hammers, glue, drills, shellacs, saws and sandpaper.
If it’s made out of wood, it’s welcome at the mill on Fathers Day.
There are opportunities available to those wishing to sell or give a workshop about your particular woodcraft at the mill. Call Dave Cursons at the Grist Mill Heritage Club (250-499-5417), or Mill operator Chris Matheson (250-499-2888).
