Idle Hands Craft Show is a unique holiday gift sale of local handmade items. Something for everyone, naughty and nice.
Admission is $2
THIS IS A CASH ONLY EVENT
We are looking forward to seeing you at the show. It is a great opportunity to buy quality, one of a kind, handmade holiday gifts for those on your list or perhaps find a few things for yourself. Or just come and be inspired to make some gifts of your own.
Idle hands is about giving local artist and crafters an opportunity to sell things they love to make, to connect with other creative people and sell their wares at reasonable prices without a middle man. It is also a place for people to come see and meet some of the regions best independent talent and buy directly from them. Why would you go to the mall and buy factory made massed produced items that have been shipped here from half way around the world?
This year we have included some local photographers, painters and print makers. We have some delicious vegan baking and chocolates. Preserves made using recipes that have been passed down generations. There will also be gorgeous knits and felted work made into clothing, hats and children's toys. Jewellery made with silver, wood, upcycled vintage and other mixed media pieces. Clocks, pillows and other home decor items. Screen printed shirts, scarves and upcyled clothing. Recycled leather wallets, purses and bags. Collage work, cards and stationary. Soaps, face and body care products made with natural essential oils. Beautiful ceramics and hand blown glass. New this year we're featuring seasonal floral creations. The list is endless and all items are handmade.
We are also fundraising for the Cambridge ST School Outdoor Classroom.
