Paying little rent, or pure consignment, our artisans have been able to remain here from our first day of opening, branding to every customer walking in the door, because consignment is the most fair and affordable for most vendors.
We also maintain a jeweller & gemmologist on the premises for all jewellery repairs and bespoke designing- from costume to custom!
Our small, private studios for artists needing a space to create outside the home, who prefer to enjoy a more social and interactive atmosphere, gaining access to the visiting public.
At present, we have Fa-Real, a custom clothes printing company, an encaustic & oil painter (Tara Shelton), and a lawyer (Phil Pothen) who specialises in environmental and zoning law.
We have a large art gallery that exhibits a monthly show that all artists may submit their work to. A fun opening night with live music by The Sidewalkers, licensed bar and treats is held every First Friday of the month.
In the same room, classes of many sorts are held, for example: oil painting, life drawing with models, acrylic painting, encaustic (painting, mixed media in hot beeswax onto wood), resin over photo art, sketching, wood burned art and more. Also some interesting occasional workshops and other possible uses include astrological events, (including children’s' astrological charts) tarot reading, lectures, soap making, book reading & signing, rehearsal space, counselling uses, club nights (knitting, book, games and more). Use this large, open concept space as a POP-UP retail space.
Our fantastic sales staff & instructors are here for you, whether an artist, an art lover, or someone who likes giving unique, affordable gifts by local artists...maybe by your own neighbour! Our artists are happy to custom make pieces for you, so don't be afraid to ask how something can be tweaked just for you.
This is just a tiny sampling of what we have on offer!
We have over 120 artists and artisans making fine art, prints, cards, crafted gifts and teaching the arts.
