Students in the PEACE program at St. Albert Adult Learning Centre are busy fulfilling orders for the Christmas season. Students learn a variety of essential skills while handcrafting and selling one of a kind gifts.
What better way to say, “You’re as sweet as honey” with these custom, handcrafted honey dippers made from quality wood such as birch, poplar and maple. Each honey dipper can take anywhere from 2- 4 hours to create.
Check out Curtis working in the shop making his first honey dipper.
About the PEACE Program:
PEACE (Personalized Experiential Alternative Caring Education) program is an alternative school for teens who have anxiety, depression and personal issues that interfere with their schooling. It is a second chance for many students, where students can have teacher support, learn techniques to overcome obstacles, and learn new skills through Peace Pens: a student-run, self sustaining business. These high-school aged students earn credits creatively, and partake in engaging alternative activities including fitness, outdoor education, and art workshops. All pens and other products in the PEACE shop are custom made and created from start to finish by students in the program. Each item has its own unique style reflective of the creator. Any item purchased will come with an insert containing a description of the program, the type of wood or acrylic used, and the name of the student who created the item.
