Artisans in Action – Registration now open!

Registration is now open for the 7th season of our favourite series of pop-up shows, Artisans in Action. The first Sunday of the month throughout the summer and early fall we welcome artists to take over the museum in Avondale for the afternoon, transforming the space into a community market where artists demonstrate and explain how they create their art or products. We highlight artists and artisans working in both traditional and contemporary methods, with different mediums being showcased each month.

Any participants registering prior to March 8th will benefit from being included in advertising to be featured in our Arts Map, with a distribution of 10 000 copies in May.

The cost to participate is $25 and artists keep all proceeds from sales.
