It’s official! We have opened the doors at our second shop - located right at the main Byward Market entrance at William and George Street (click here for directions), right across from the original BeaverTails! We are lucky to work with both BeaverTails and the City of Ottawa to be the tenant of this amazing new Gateway Stand to handmade local products. The new Maker House Market will have a curated collection of 50+ Canadian makers, with 30+ from around Ottawa.
You are invited to our next weekly "Meet the Maker" live demo in the new location, this Thursday, September 7th from 4-6pm when Adrian and Britta join us from Low Poly Crafts to showcase their 3D Paper Sculpture techniques! Follow @makerhouseco on Instagram for weekly Meet The Maker updates.
This month we would like to encourage you all to “Make your own dam(n) Beaver”. Yes, you heard that right. Artist, Jessica Bromley Bartram, will teach us how to embroider basic stitches on to the industrious Canadian icon, the beaver. The finished product can then be used as an ornament, children’s toy or cute showpiece for the home. Join us Thursday, September 21st at 6pm for some stitchery fun!
Spots are limited so register here :-)
