From visiting the Bison herd before dawn, to sunset on a secluded lake, to sneaking into an abandoned barn, to hiking to Bald Hill (best view in Manitoba) to seeing a moose, a herd of elk, and a super cute beaver swimming around, to waking up at 4:15 to catch the milky way, we had a busy couple of days in the park.

The Forks and From Here & Away are partnering together for a photography workshop that is FREE and open to all*. Encompassing the past and present of The Forks, together we’ll explore the theme of "Meeting Place." The two-hour photo walk will include technical instruction on how to use our cameras better (at workshops, everyone teaches everyone), as well as explore the sites history.

The workshop is free, but donations towards the FH&A Fund are accepted. No previous skill or knowledge of photography is required. Feel free to use your phone, film or digital cameras. You are encouraged to bring friends and an attitude open to learning.

Bison are the icon of the prairies. We will get up close and personal with the herd at FortWhyte. We will all get a chance to get the rare opportunity to photograph and learn in depth about these amazing animals. 

This workshop, like all our programming, is open and accessible to anyone, super friendly, community based, and focused on encouraging people to tap into their creative impulses and experience something fun and interesting.

From Here & Away // Wild Saint Boniface Workshop Invitation

This coming Saturday we are going to explore the relationship between nature and industry in this neighbourhood. The progression from historical indigenous camp sites, to early trade route settlements, to sparse industrial area, to a very wild place over the last 300 years is impressive to say the least.
