Gerdan Making Workshop

Description: n celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Ontario Branch’s new exhibit Trunk Tales: Leaving home ... finding home chronicles periods of Ukrainian immigration to Canada dating back to the late 1800s. It tells poignant stories of Ukrainian immigrants to Canada and revolves around four trunks brought over four major periods of immigration. Each trunk has its own fascinating history of hardship, loss and ultimately great hope and joy found in a new home in Canada.
