Welcome to The Mill at Piper Creek
Located in Castleton, Northumberland County, Ontario
Heartstrings Gala - Sat Feb 16, 2019
Heartstrings is a gala evening to cap off our first year of Yarns from the Mill programming. Come and mingle and share a drink with us as we enjoy canapes and hors’ d’ouevres by Black Dress catering. Enjoy live music as you peruse a local art exhibition and a lovely little silent auction, the proceeds of which will go towards our 2019 Yarns Festival. The highlight of the evening will be a comedy performance by renowned comedienne, Linda Kash. Heartstrings is about connecting as a community as we intertwine visual and textile art, music, storytelling and improvisation. We are delighted to have local dignitaries and the Ontario Trillium Foundation coming and help us celebrate.
Consider renewing or buying Membership in the Mill for 2019, as we work to build a rich tradition of heritage and the arts in the heart of the Northumberland Hills.
*Funding for Yarns from the Mill 2018 was provided in part by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

How we got here
In 2011 our family changed course, uprooted from our settled careers and lives in Edmonton, and came to spend some time getting to know the other side of Canada.
We bought a historic property just far enough from Toronto to be really in the country, and are building on our dream of developing a space in time and place to bring together music and arts, healing and learning.
Central to this change is a big, shabby, queen of a grist mill… once the centre of pioneering spirit that opened our land. We are slowly restoring the mill – we have already shored her up and capped her with the power to convert sunshine to energy. After some time out to restore the beautiful old mill house, our thoughts are returning to designs for the mill.
For now, our careers sprawl across Eastern Ontario and back to Western Canada. As the space in the mill opens up, we hope to draw more and more of that work into the mill, and make it hub of excitement and creativity.
