Culture Days 100 Mile Finds [east] Market

When I found out that 100 Mile Finds would be participating in Culture Days with an artist market in Toronto, I offered to organize a satellite version for 100 Mile Finds vendors east of the city. Thus, the 100 Mile Finds Market [east] event was born!

Three incredibly talented artists joined me at Bola! in downtown Oshawa to offer workshops and demonstrations from noon until 4pm.

Glass artist Jeanette Bartosik spent the day creating fabulous wire-wrapped jewelry and played host to our mini-marketplace.

Dawn Barbieri of the eco-friendly company Albertine Dawn offered a “How To Add Color To Your Decor With Accessories” workshop.

Lesley Kelz of SquidPress hosted a collage workshop where participants embellished giant letters with fabric, paper and yarn.

I offered an upcycling workshop that had guests using discarded photographs to make paper ornaments. A few participants said they would be making more of these for their Christmas tree this year!

Thanks to all the artists for agreeing to participate and for making the day a success!
