City of craft poster

 

This Saturday is City of Craft in Toronto. If you're local, you should pop by. It's a massive, magical gathering of hand crafted gifts wares made my independant artists. 

 Also, If you do come by, I'll be running a little craft workshop at 2:30 on Saturday making these little guys, known as God's eyes. Come and say hi!  (Sadly, there won't be wine at City of Craft)
