Elevate Winter Bazaar on Saturday

Creators of unique crafts, clothing, art and adornments will converge in the Lower Native Sons Hall on Saturday Dec. 12, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a one-of-a-kind bazaar. The fourth annual Elevate Winter Bazaar is filled to the brim with an eclectic and exciting mix of treasures to suit ever sense and sensibility.

Presented by the Elevate Consortium, the Elevate Winter Bazaar provides a venue for diverse regional artists and artisans who offer unique creations, from the intriguing to the unusual and from the inspiring to the challenging.

From nature-inspired screen prints and up-cycled jewelry, to bones and feathers, bike tires and beach glass, the Elevate Bazaar has something for everyone. Bazaar goers will also discover some surprising variations on cards, fairies, buttons, belt buckles, truffles, caps, dolls, prints, shawls, gems, carvings and even puzzles.

In addition, this busy and festive event features decadent food and drink, music, workshops, beautiful face painting for the kids and a relaxed and moody lounge area for craft fair goers. Come for the bazaar but stay for an extended Elevate-style experience. Workshops are offered for a $5 donation and open to all. Pre-registration is appreciated by emailing media@elevatethearts.com.

Workshops include:

• 11-12:30 – Cumberland Arts and Culture Society Life Drawing (draped for all ages)

• 1-2 p.m.- Collage workshop with Sonia Stastny of Sew Sisters Artist Guild Society

• 2:30-3:30 – Blue Christmas card making with Dawn Copeman.
