A Handmade Holiday: Local Artisan Market

CBU Art Gallery, with co-organizer Reloved Design, presents A Handmade Holiday: Local Artisans Market. The market will bring together a selection of local artisans to provide a range of handmade products to the CBU community and the general public.

Join us for this unique shopping experience to find something special for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list. Contemporary local artisans will offer a variety of handmade items including pottery, jewellery, hand bags, bath and body goods, art, baking and more! The market will have friendly price points to accomodate all budgets (you too students!).

This festive event will include complimentary refreshments and entertainment, and a fundraiser for Fishes & Loaves. Please bring a non-perishable food item to donate.

Get a jump on your holiday shopping, buy local, support artisans in our community, and help out a good cause!
