Tagged in: Craft Fairs, Kids, Cool & Unique, Arts & Crafts, Weekend


Please join us for our 2nd Annual Pop Up Shop! We will be selling ‘alternative art materials’ by the bagful. Purchase a grocery bag for $10 or a lunch bag for $6 and take home as many treasures as your bag can hold!

Local businesses have been generously donating their surplus, cast-off and recycled materials to artsREACH for our new upcycled art program called reCREATE. Come fill your bag with our large selection of fabric and paper swatches, fasteners, notions, craft supplies and ‘whatzits’ of every shape and size!

Bring the kids to visit our new artsREACH caravan parked in front of the school, where they can pick up a toonie “mystery grab bag.” Our artsREACH instructors will be on hand to help kids work on their craft project at our Creation Station inside the school.

Come join the fun and be inspired to create awesome recycled art. You won’t want to leave empty handed!
