Events

Habitat was designed with space to do all kinds of events. Workshops based on what we have been asked for in the past…and community inspired ideas are always the best way to succeed…so propose a class, we can help find an instructor & resources if needed and lets keep bringing the arts to life in Jasper!

Workshop space, is there a workshop/class you would like to see offered?  Is there one you would like to offer?  The rooms are available by the hour, day or week.

SO, what do you want to do?!

User agreements are available on request.

Contact habitatforthearts@gmail.com or stop into the Habitat to see the space and pick up a user agreement.
