Christmas Boutique

Each November and December, Place des Arts’ Artisan Shop expands into a fine craft market: The Christmas Boutique. Offering holiday shoppers a veritable Aladdin’s cave of glittering bobbles and delightful seasonal gifts, the Christmas Boutique is the perfect place to find beautifully handcrafted, locally made artisan wares.

Call for artists!

Place des Arts is seeking new artists/artisans wishing to sell their wares during the 2018 Christmas Boutique

who create finely crafted items such as handmade beeswax candles, stationery and greeting cards, and knitted items, particularly those made from natural fibres. Place des Arts will not be accepting prints of any kind, jewelry or ceramics.

New submissions to the Christmas Boutique are juried for suitability and craftsmanship.

The Christmas Boutique runs from November 13 to December 20, 2018 with a grand opening reception on Friday, November 16 from 7 – 9pm.

Deadline for application and submission of works for jury is Friday, July 27. For more information, contact the Artisan Shop Coordinator Lidia Kosznik at 604.664.1636 ext. 23 or email lkosznik@placedesarts.ca.
