Have you heard of Fabrique 1840?
Fabrique 1840 was inspired by the Canadian Crafts Federation, a more than 100 year old national network that showcases pieces from the east coast to west and north to south, exploring Canada's creative wealth through the work of 70 professional craftspeople, including TABITHA + CO™.
You will find unique jewellery, decorative accessories, and utilitarian objects that have been meticulously handcrafted by creators from across Canada that will enrich your everyday life with art and authenticity. Raw materials, like leather are transformed into durable, one-of-a-kind items that tell a story - the story of modern material culture.
“We are delighted that this partnership is bringing the best of all participants together: professional artists, community engagement, an excellent market, and most of all - incredible work from craft artists across the country. Craft speaks for itself, but the story it tells is broad and meaningful. Buying craft is about more than a purchase - it becomes part of your personal collection, your personal story. Connecting with craft makes a difference, and the CCF is here to help connect people to that purpose.” ~ Maegen Black, Director, Canadian Crafts Federation.
The Fabrique 1840 is presented by the National Bank of Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Crafts Federation, together providing valuable support that helps local businesses grow and, in turn, enrich our communities and our art, creating a strong network of mutual promotion and recognition.
Fabrique 1840 Virtual Market is open until October 31st at simons.ca
Enjoy exploring the creative work that these talented craftspeople have to offer!
