New Craft Coalition is a carefully curated art, craft and design market and it’s back at Festival Hall this November. This year will look a little different for me - my work will be among the amazing local goods at the Outside The Shape space. Come see for yourself why this is the most anticipated market of the year!

Natalie Gerber Studio & Workshops

Create and print your own designs with me, an artist and surface designer. In this class you’ll explore multiple block-printing techniques to create your own patterns on fabric and paper. You will use potatoes, rubber and foam to create your own unique stamps. This workshop appeals to beginner and experienced designers with a focus on low-tech processes that you can continue experimenting with at home. Take home your custom-printed stationary, tote bag and your handmade stamps.

Contextural: A Fibre Arts Cooperative
1407 - 14th Avenue NW, Calgary
Closing Reception, August 29, 5 - 7pm

How do we understand a place? What are the social, cultural, political, historical, traditional, conceptual and personal dimensions that define place? How do these questions help artists to understand and explore the context in which they locate their research and work? The Placemaking Residency allows participants to consider these questions and more in a community studio environment, supported by an exciting mix of visiting artists and scholars. Make a place for your practice, for your voice.
