Art can portray the world's most complex subjects: the passion of love, the horrors of war, and the despair of fruit waiting to be eaten. Hold a mirror to nature with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get two tickets to Make It! The Handmade Revolution at the Alberta Aviation Museum (up to a $10 value). Kids age 12 and younger are admitted for free. This Groupon includes admission for all four days of the event, which runs November 17–20.

Make It! The Handmade Revolution, a craft fair started by a brother-sister duo, showcases the work of more than 100 Canadian artisans and designers at an event Merge Magazine described as "the craft sale for the next generation." Visitors can trek to A La Carte's booth to stock up on handmade cards, or meander over to Bubblegum Sass's display and purchase crocheted scarves that double as hammocks for teddy bears. Unique Clay Art rounds out living room galleries with fired bowls and masks, and a silent auction supports the efforts of The Kidney Foundation of Canada. Festival visitors can tune their ears to live music such as the acoustic tunes of Harry Wojak. Tasty, homemade creations from vendors such as Totally Nuts sate hunger with snacks that are as sweet and savoury as a love poem written in worcestershire sauce.

Though Make It! The Handmade Revolution sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Make It! The Handmade Revolution

Run by designer Jenna Herbut and her brother Chandler, also a designer, the fairs showcase the work of more than 200 Canadian artisans and designers at events Merge magazine has described as "the craft sale for the next generation." The laid-back emporium—that has received tons of positive press—thrums with the energy of designers such as Sugar + Candy, Faye Tality Couture, and Prickly Potter Ceramics as they enthusiastically promote their wares. Music serenades ears wandering between booths, and homemade creations from vendors such as My Chocolate Tree sate hunger with snacks that are as sweet and savoury as a love poem written in worcestershire sauce.

As an extension of her mission to improve designers' livelihoods, Jenna channels her background in marketing into a parallel venture Make It! University, which helps artisans hone their business models.

Customer Reviews

Love everything about it
Joao C. · December 27, 2016
Great event first time being there. It was lovely but be ready with some extra cash to spend as local designer stuff is a bit more pricey but your supporting local artist and its worth it in the end! All-in-all very nice event must check it out if you have never been!

Great variety of products made by local artisans! It wasn't crazy crowded and overall, a great experience. Will go again next year!
