Self-isolating during COVID-19 has challenged us to find new ways to feel connected to friends and family. From delivering groceries to neighbours and hosting birthday parties on zoom, we’re all trying new things to spread joy and support.

Here at the Cultural Centre we’re turning back the clock and looking at our collection of historic notecards for inspiration on how to keep in touch the old fashioned way!

Make your own handmade notecard with four tutorials inspired by the collection. You can also share cards from the collection online or upload a photo of a handmade card you’ve made to our gallery of cards made by the public and inspire others to be creative!
