We'll be happily selling our products at the 5th annual outdoor Ravenswing - Ottawa's FREE Craft & Zine Fair!
Music, crafts, workshops, zines.
WHEN: Sunday May 29th, 2011 from 11am - 4pm
WHERE: in Minto Park at Elgin and Gilmour in Ottawa *Rain Location: Jack Purcell Community Centre*
This fun, family-friendly event showcases a variety of local artisans and writers and features independent musicians and skill-sharing workshops.
Founded by Sean Zio and Faye Estrella, the fair was established with the intention of creating an accessible arts venue for independent and do-it-yourself artists and writers. The fair bypasses the high table fees of many arts festivals that can impede artists from exhibiting their work. In order to keep the fair accessible to fair-goers as well, 60 per cent of vendor's goods will be priced for $20 or less.
The fair also features free creative workshops by Les Ateliers; this year's workshops focus on creating jewelry from recycled fabrics, as well as an improv workshop.
Complementing the great visuals and workshops will be the sweet summer sounds of local musical acts Male Nurse, Mark Alexander McIntyre, Django Libre, Lipstick Lesbian and Silkken Laumann.
Ravenswing is proud to once again share Minto Park with the Clothesline Project, a public art display in support of ending violence against women.
We hope to see you there!
