If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you may have noticed us posting “#craftselfie” photos from our studio every Saturday recently.
This year is Craft Year 2015 – a year-long, nation-wide festival aimed at promoting craft as a key player in Canadian Culture, coordinated by the Canadian Crafts Federation. The type of events they are looking for includes craft exhibitions, fairs, book launches, open houses, conferences, workshops, competitions, publications, community events and more. All events registered for Craft Year 2015 will be displayed on their website for the whole world to see.
#Craftselfie Saturday is one of the initiatives of Craft Year 2015. This is the description on their Craft Year website – “Working on the wheel? Rocking a ring? Gazing at glazes in the Gallery? No matter where you are or what you’re up to, when it comes to craft – we want to see what you see! Share your shots with us on #craftselfie Saturdays.
Every Saturday throughout Craft Year 2015, we encourage you to post your selfies with craft. Whether you’re a maker or a picture taker, post your pic from studios, galleries, boutiques, museums, even from your own collections, wherever you engage with craft!
So we have been posting a photo every week, of what we have been working on in our studio. Today we were finishing a few fairy garden accessories we had designed and poured in pewter earlier this week.
