Tin Town artists Christmas sale and more

Everyone is welcome to the 10th annual Tin Town Artist’s Christmas Sale and Open House on Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Follow the candy canes throughout Tin Town and get to know the neighbours. With festive treats at each location, this is a fun way to share in the creative atmosphere of this unique neighborhood.

Peruse the artist’s studios to find creative gifts for everyone on your list. Silver jewelry by Robert Moon, RustWorks Roberta Meilleur, paintings by Barb Hutson, stained glass by Nancy Morrison and pottery by Katy Fogg. Also, we’re including our new Tin Town artists: Sue Pyper with watercolours, pyrography, jewelry and art cards and Manny Meyer Paintings.

Explore the creative businesses of Tin Town: art show and craft fair at the coffee shop with music in the afternoon, winter faire featuring children’s craft projects, puppet show and choir. There will also be fundraising art prints available, pasta, wine tasting and vegan middle Eastern fusion samples and a Mini Fair Trade Market.

Karate and Shiatsu massage demos and yoga classes will be by donation. Enter the by-donation draw for an exquisite gift basket.
