Next Weekend In Fernie

Twilight Craft Fair in Fernie BC - handmade local artisans

Sadly, I won’t be at these craft fairs with my art or our mobiles. We will be in Calgary at Curated. but I fully recommend this local handmade craft fair. It will be packed with good local goods and you have two options – Friday night and Saturday.

If you’re in town on December 15, Michelle and I will be at that craft fair selling our mobiles and suspended art, including ornaments and banners.
