Create your personal gift wrap at the Canadian Postal Museum

Gatineau, Quebec, December 1, 2006 – Whether it’s for the holiday season, a birthday or for another special occasion, join us in the Canadian Postal Museum, inside the Canadian Museum of Civilization, to create cool gift wrap with materials inspired by popular culture. You can even bring small gifts to wrap during the workshop!

This workshop is presented in conjunction with the Canadian Postal Museum’s newest exhibition, The Post Goes Pop (until January 6, 2008). The exhibition looks at the role played by the postal service in everyday life and shows how postal imagery – often drawn from the past – is widely used in popular culture.
