A bit of background: the idea for the show came from the 100 Mile Diet. Just as we would all like for folks to support local farmers we thought why not apply the same concept to holiday gift buying. Make It Indie is an independent Fine Craft & Decorative Art Show whose mandate is to encourage, support and promote regional artists and artisans who unabashedly make it, make it independently and support each other in the process. We are looking for artists who make well-constructed, well-conceived, provocative work that exemplifies good art practice. Currently we have photographers, illustrators, painters, a ceramic artist, several fibre artists, two glass artists, designers, soap makers, a cabinetmaker, a tile mosaic artist and the list goes on. To date our artists represent the region from Toronto to Peterbough to Bellville. As word gets out more and more like-minded artists are coming forward.
A few of the websites that have posted our vendor call and will advertise the show closer to the date. Thanks bloggers you rock!
