Beaver Pelts showcased at Artfest Port Credit!

Paula Lishman has developed, over the past 40 years, a unique patented process for turning high quality, prime Canadian Beaver, Fox, Sable and Muskrat pelts, into a reinforced fur yarn. Her trappers are primarily the Algonquins, who harvest in the cold Ottawa Valley winters when the beaver and fox fur is at its most plush.

The Algonquins utilize all parts of the animals. The pelt is dressed using a hand-pluck process, dyed, blocked then trimmed and cut by hand, with a razor blade, from the back of the leather into a very narrow strip, about 1/8" wide, always cutting from the outside edge, following the shape of the pelt to avoid joins. This thin strip is then twisted and reinforced, again by hand, with a very strong cotton yarn of the same colour. This forms a durable, evenly surfaced fur yarn, ready to knit, weave or crochet, to make a luxurious, washable and flexible fur fabric!

Cotton, Silk and Cashmere yarns are used in combination with the fur yarn to produce exquisite items. No lining, two-sided fur, utilizing the insulation that benefits the beavers all winter long. Paula Lishman makes by hand, shawls, scarves, hats, headbands, mittens, vests, jackets, ponchos and throws in many colours, styles and sizes.

A touch of Europe at Artfest Toronto 2017!

The Story of the Historic Distillery District: A DREAM COMES TRUE

The Distillery Historic District opened in 2003 and today it is widely regarded as Canada’s premier arts, culture and entertainment destination. A place brimming with creativity and creative people, that can inspire dreams, and a place that can help them come true.
— Distillery Historic District

How The Distillery District came to be......

"Nearly 10 years ago a small group of visionary developers had a dream for Toronto. They looked at a derelict collection of Victorian Industrial buildings that had been pronounced a national historic site and imagined transforming it. Not into another “historic district” or “pioneer village” but into something exciting and unique. Something the city would be proud of. They wanted to create a place that would excite and inspire the senses. Where people could experience new ideas, new foods, new designs and new ways of living and working.

Our vision was to combine the romance and relaxing atmosphere of European walking and patio districts with the hip, cool dynamic of an area like New York City’s SoHo or Chelsea, where creative minds get together and you feel as if anything could happen.

Their dream was to provide a place where creativity would flourish and passion would be aroused – where artists, artisans, entrepreneurs and businesspeople could rub shoulders and inspire each other. So they began plans to restore the 47 buildings known as the Gooderham & Worts Distillery.

They harnessed the talent of hundreds of tradesmen and craftsmen who were skilled in working with 19th century timber, planks, stone and brick. They went to great lengths in the restoration process to repurpose original materials and brilliantly blend them with today’s modern materials and green technologies.

The result is nothing short of perfection. As the Toronto Star says: 'To enter The Distillery is to step back into an era of horse-drawn carts, windmills and sailing ships'. One can only marvel at the authentic exterior restoration that was achieved. But it is when you step inside the buildings that you truly realize the magnitude of what was accomplished.

What you will find is a dramatic fusion of old and new. An inspired blend of Victorian Industrial architecture and stunning 21st century design and creativity. The result is an internationally acclaimed village of one-of-a-kind stores, shops, galleries, studios, restaurants, cafes, theatres and more."

Brianna Mulvale features her folk art paintings at Artfest Port Credit!

Brianna Mulvale is a young full time Canadian artist and designer from Georgetown, Ontario. Her love for art and creating began in early childhood and is one of her main inspirations in life. Creating and painting is her everyday pleasure and commitment. Brianna creates folk art that is fun and whimsical, with a little bit of funk.

I try as an artist to present a reflection of the beauty in life with inspirations drawn from the otherwise mundane and inspired by what connects us all, even if not seen in the moment of time. 
Life is a series of ups and downs. Art should reflect this and be able to move you. I prefer to cheer people up. The thought is: we could all use a little extra happiness in our lives wherever we can get it. If I can make someone smile with my art, then I have succeeded.”
— Brianna Mulvale

Brianna works with acrylic on canvas and her themes are based on folk art.. Her paintings depict sweet characters inhabiting a charming hilly land. Her paintings are full of a collection of houses, hills, hot air balloons, scarecrows, horses, dogs, cows and cats, kites, kids, and snowmen.

Her use of vibrant colours creates an enchanting world that draws you in. Brianna also creates giclée archival prints and blank greeting card reproductions of her work. All of the imaging is completed by her and the prints are produced in Halton, Ontario.

Check out Brainna's Artwork here.  Her funky, folk artwork will be showcased at Artfest Port Credit, from May 26 - 28th!  See you at the show!

Metal Mind Forge ~ Kyle Thornley

Blacksmith artisan, Kyle Thornley - will be exhibiting his metal artwork at our Artfest Port Credit show, May 26th- 28th!  

Kyle Thornley has been in both the artistic and architectural blacksmiths field since 2005 with the establishment of Metal Mind Forge in 2009.  Through commissioned works, functional pieces, architectural metalwork and exhibitions, he is deeply committed to the practice. Kyle finds blacksmith work totally engaging with both the intellectual and physical demands – visualizing a goal, establishing the creation process, and acting on that plan with a mind open to alterations and innovations in form.

This progression requires handling multiple images in rapid succession: the fire, the plasticity of the iron, the feel of the hammer, and the expectations for shape – a process that is both exciting and sustaining. 

Kyle uses both traditional techniques and modern processes to maximize the properties and integrity of the steel; the design possibilities with metal are infinite. When working with fire, manipulating the material, feeling the weight and textures, all senses are connected to the matter and the process.  This is when Kyle feels he fully understands the historic roots of blacksmithing’s in the human experience.

Kyle’s belief in the power of community to effect change is mirrored in the generous spirit of the global blacksmithing community through which he has incorporated knowledge and resources from master smiths around the world with his own individual study and experimentation.  Kyle has a strong commitment to share this rich and historic practice.

Each forged creation by Kyle Thornley of Metal Mind Forge is distinctive with unique features of texture, size and finish.  The blacksmithed metal designs range from traditional to contemporary highlighting the endless compositional possibilities of heat and hammers bringing life to industrial steel.  The products extend from functional to fine art  - from forged candle holders, shelving, fireplace tools to garden sculpture, art vessels, contemporary sculpture.

Artfest Gourmet Food Exhibitors to Delight your Palate!

Artfest Toronto visitors absolutely love food, that's why we have a scrumptious selection of fine gourmet foods available at all of our Artfest shows! 

We have gathered a delightful group of gourmet food artisans for you to choose from.  They are all fantastic and as you stroll through the art exhibits at the Distillery District in Toronto this Victoria Day long weekend, you will be enticed to sample, and likely purchase, many delicious treats!

Our Artfest Goumet Food exhibitors proudly mix together a fine selection of fresh and locally sourced ingredients to please each and every palate taste!  This year at the Distillery you'll find Pepperbrew Hot Sauces, Sprucewood Cookies, Carmichael MeatsWicket Gourmet, and Cooks Gourmet!  All to die for!!

 

Our Gourmet Food Exhibitors:

Pepper Brew Gourmet Pepper Sauces was created originally in the mountains of Jamaica and has quickly established its home in Ontario.  Pepper Brew Gourmet Pepper Sauces is the brainchild of Elizabeth Hill who created these original full-bodied, full-flavoured pepper sauces over 14 years ago.

The product was created out of a need to fill a void in the available choices of store brand pepper sauces that all competed for first-place in having a lot of heat, but lacking in flavor. What started out as a very special product shared among family and friends has now become a line of Canadian made pepper sauces that they are proud to share with the world.

Sprucewood Cookies has been exhibiting at Artfest shows now for several years. We love chef Mark! He is constantly evolving his recipe repertoire and adding new varieties to his line of addictive and delicious shortbread cookies. Sprucewood Cookies is the source for all natural and fabulous fine food products.

They are a young, creative, and committed team of foodies who manufacture high quality, small batch, handmade savory shortbread cookies, and pure dessert shortbread cookies. Share their passion for fine food and pure flavours and drop by their booth at the show for a sample of their delectable goodies. Sprucewood is "artisan" in their approach and all of their products are handmade with culinary love and care.

Carmichael Meats began when Dougal Carmichael started his concession business in 1976 selling confectionery products. Since then, Dougal attended many local fall fairs, craft shows and other events creating a successful small family business.  In 1987, Dougal expanded the business to include specialty meats.  Along with our traditional smoked beef and pork products, we also offer Venison, Kangaroo, Bison and other specialty meats.  

Carmichael Meats is now promoted at shows throughout Ontario.

Wicket Gourmet shares endless ideas for transforming meat, chicken, pork, seafood, tofu, veggies and more into "Feasts of Flavour". Go ahead, indulge yourself! Explore. When you're done contact Wicket Gourmet and treat yourself to the most incredible taste sensations you've ever experienced.

At Wicked Gourmet it's all about flavour & taste. Our goal is customer satisfaction.

Cook's Gourmet was established by Dave and Sandy Cook and boy oh boy are their gourmet food items delish!

Their delectable gourmet collection includes a fine selection of tapenades, tapas, infused oils, culinary herbs and a plethora of mouth-watering sauces! Stop by and try for yourself - you won't be disappointed!

Sabrina Parish leads Artfest Toronto's Children's Programming!

This Victoria Day long weekend at Artfest Toronto, send your children off to a FREE art workshop led by Sabrina Parrish.  

Sabrina Parrish was born and raised in the heart of Collingwood, Ontario. Her general interests lay in art, cooking and nature. She has been teaching young children as well as adult art classes for the past few years, working in schools, classrooms, galleries and studios.

Sabrina believes that working strong technical skills and historical components into lessons is important. Having said that, she also believes that having fun and being able to express yourself through art is equally as important.

Sabrina started with Artfest Kids in May 2014. She's travelled to the distillery in Toronto, Port Credit and Kingston for Artfest to develop and facilitate children's art programming. Sabrina's arts education started twenty years ago when her mom enrolled her for weekend art classes in Collingwood taught by none other than Artfest's show producer, Lory MacDonald. Sabrina was hooked.
