Durham Region-based women's art collective The Iris Group will be part of the invasion, showcasing art and offering free workshops.
Japanese Brush Painting workshops will be offered by Rowena Dykins in one hour intervals from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the festival's final day of September 27. According to the group's media release:
"Participants will be encouraged to experiment with the materials to learn the natural shapes the brush makes, the consistency of the ink and the absorbency of the paper, to paint a colourful butterfly, mist filled mountains, or enjoy the medium in one's own way."
