Etsy: Made in Canada returns with 33 Canadian cities hosting a one-day marketplace celebrating the Etsy community. In Toronto, be sure to visit MaRS Discovery District (101 College St.) and OCAD University (outdoor market at 100 McCaul St. and indoor market at 49 McCaul St.) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to shop your favourite local Etsy sellers.

Toronto's Etsy Teams are excited to be hosting Etsy: Made in Canada again, with 170 local Etsy sellers at two downtown locations ready to showcase the area's handmade wares and vintage goods. Visitors to the MaRS marketplace have the chance to shop favourites like sustainable fashion designs from Vespertine; children's wool toys from Little Bellwoods; and quirky laser-cut wood broaches from Sous Sous. For a full list of sellers that will be featured at the MaRS marketplace, see the vendor lookbook. Stop off at OCAD U for screen-printed paper and stationary from SCTING; colourful hand-dyed wool yarn from Better With Yarn; and minimalistic leather accessories from Aunt Rae. Come support OCAD U students and alumni!

Across Canada, from Salt Spring Island, to Whitehorse, to St. John's., each market is powered by an Etsy Team, a self-organized group of like-minded sellers, and key partners Moneris, Canada Post and Airbnb. Etsy Teams and their Team Captains ensure each event reflects the city's individual style and culture, in addition to providing support to members and newcomers looking to start an Etsy shop. Through sharing advice, experiences and resources, Etsy teams help spark inspiration and encourage collaboration among its community.

Polymers in Action: Art Making with Waste Plastics Workshops

Monday, January 12, 2015 - 5:45pm

Led by Vicki Clough, MFA Criticism and Curatorial Practice 

All students and faculty are invited to take part in the following workshops— "Polymers in Action: Art Making with Waste Plastic". They are an integral part of a graduate research project on the creative and art-making and community building possibilities that can be achieved when using recyclable plastic materials as the primary medium. The aim is to engage with important environmental issues regarding waste plastics and ethical disposal methods.

A presentation and critical discussion about environmental stewardship through art-making will allow participants to learn about similar existing artistic practices that can then be adapted into the practical workshop section. Feedback and idea sharing will be extremely valuable to this platform and both are encouraged to enrich the experience for all involved.

All artists and makers who attend these sessions may be invited to attend an interview prior to and following the events. 

An online community of socially and environmentally conscious art-makers will be established with interested attendees and all work produced during this investigation will be exhibited on a website, to be launched in March 2015. 

 

Spaces are limited to 25 per session.

For more information, please contact Vicki Clough via the Eventbrite registration page.
