Cabbagetown Arts and Crafts 2011 – My Favourites

Posted by Moshe Mikanovsky

This week I had some art-disaster, but I am too busy fixing it so I won’t write about it yet… I will though later this week or early next week.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite artists and artwork from the Cabbagetown Arts and Crafts 2011 festival which happened in the last weekend. I visited it on Sunday, and it was a lovely show, especially with the beautiful weather and the Fall Festival at the adjacent Riverdale Farm (a farm in the middle of Toronto). Cabbagetown is such a beautiful neighborhood. If you have a chance to visit Toronto, and you have some time to stroll around, check it out. The little well-kept houses with manicured gardens (no grass, only plants), narrow streets and charm everywhere you look.

This show includes many crafts as well as some food vendors (such as the Soy Ladies) and soap crafters (such as Smell This Soap), I focused mainly on the artists. And here is my pick:
