The Deal

  • C$5 for admission for two (C$10 value)

More than 160 quirky, talented designers show off their wares at the Make It! The Handmade Revolution craft fair, which runs April 22-24. Festival visitors can tune their ears to music and eat snacks from local vendors. This Groupon includes admission for two people, which grants unlimited admission across the fair’s three days, and kids aged 12 and younger are admitted for free. The craft fair takes place at the PNE Forum.

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.
