Handmade Hamilton: A holiday show of art and craft
December 7 and 8, 2019 - 11 am to 5:00 pm
Admission: $2

Staircase Café Theatre, 27 Dundurn St North

Join GirlCanCreate and The Staircase Cafe Theatre as we present a weekend of high quality art and craft at this years Handmade Hamilton: a holiday show of art and craft! This year we will feature 32 vendors of art and craft to highlight some of the finest artisans of fashion, art, jewelry, ceramics, textiles, and paper goods in Hamilton and area. 

Handmade Hamilton began in 2012 as a small boutique craft show when curator Lisa Pijuan-Nomura was the Artistic Director of the popular James North Studio.  When the gallery closed in September of 2014, she began to look for possible venues for a larger show. She has always been interested in putting craft shows in historical buildings so when she first walked into the Staircase she knew that she had found a unique heritage building that would be a perfect fit 

This year we will be offering 50 free swag bags from the first attendees in line each day.  The bags will be filled to the brim with some great offerings from the vendors and local supporters. 

We will also be offering full cafe service with delicious food from from the Staircase Cafe, and the Theatre will be open for those wanting to take a break from shopping and enjoy some homemade goodies.  

Lisa Pijuan-Nomura is a multidisciplinary artist, and organizer of events in Hamilton. Before moving to Hamilton in 2012, she organized the Movie and Makers Craft Show at the historical Fox Theatre in Toronto.  Aside from craft shows, she also creates one woman shows, teaches collage, is a Creativity Coach and hosts the Hamilton 7 Storytelling Collective.
