The Living Canvas

Laura Mayo of The Living Canvas creates sun and ice dyed silk scarves along with matching scarf jewelry. From the Ottawa Valley near the eastern border of majestic Algonquin Park, Laura has worked as a fibre artist since 1999. Over the years, she has learned how to push her paints and dyes to their limit, making them perform under conditions not always intend for their use. Laura has developed a line of silk scarves that will stand up to everyday wear and carefree washing.

Noggins

Noggins, the creative team of Charlene and Judy, is determined to keep Canadian heads warm and fashionable.

Charlene's hats are all crocheted by her, by hand, each one completely unique and off the hook. She prefers working with natural fibers, wools, alpaca, soy, and her favourite, bamboo (oh so soft). Judy's hats are all sewn by her. She makes her hats out of recycled clothing, and found fabrics, scouring thrift stores for castaways. She drafts her own patterns for most, but her freeform hats are true pieces of art, using the natural lines and finishes to produce designs that are completely unexpected.
