A husband-and-wife team brings together more than 50 local artists to showcase their handmade giftables during Got Craft?’s holiday edition indie craft fair. More than 1,000 annual visitors peruse the aisles, picking up handcrafted items from jewellery and clothing to housewares and toys while a DJ spins music. Stuff a stocking or oversized baby sock with Lego-inspired body ornaments from Atomic Broccoli, and spruce up a man in your life with clothing accessories by Belvedere. Wood-burned art panels and fine art prints by cabin + cub revitalize white walls better than living-room paintball tournaments, and Just Potters’ table overflows with ceramic mugs, tableware, garden items, and more kiln-hardened gifts. After getting their craft fill, visitors get their bellies full with gluten-free baked goods by The Gluten Free Epicurean, vegetarian pakoras from Varinicey Pakoras, and handmade cocoa morsels from My Chocolate Tree. Guests can also try their hand at gift creation at the DIY table featuring workshops by Spool of Thread sewing lounge.
