OOAK Wrap Up and What is Next this Spring!

Marian + Hazel participated in the One of a Kind Show on March 27th to the 31st in the brand new Etsy section! Overall I think the show was a great success and I made some great connections and new friends as a result. The space for exhibiting was quite tight but I was fortunate to be placed with two really great ladies who made the 5 long days so enjoyable! Mirit (bubyNoa) makes fantastic one of a kind dolls from upcycled materials that were just stunning!

You can check out her work in her Etsy shop.

Christine (SugarSoul) was also a lot of fun and she creates stylish handmade hats that are also reversible! You can check out her blog and Etsy shop for more info.

Exhibiting so far from home taught me so much (I hope I can learn from it all!) and it also was so interesting to receive feedback on my work from a completely different crowd. I have so many ideas to try out as a result!

The show was really well attended especially on Good Friday which was just bonkers!

It was also so great to see the work in person and meet the makers of so many Etsy shops that I was already familiar with! Putting a face to the work is always so great. The spring shows continue with the North Shore Art Crawl which happens April 20th and 21st. My work will be at Favourite in the Lonsdale Quay. This will be a different event for me as I will mostly be showcasing my artwork which will be great. The weekend after that (April 27th and 28th) is Got Craft? which is always a great show and is being held in a new venue! You can check out the amazing lookbook for the show on issuu.
