Some Awesome Artisans


The skilled work of artisans at The Bookshelf event in May will showcase some great decorative collections. These fine folk who make or create things by hand share their practiced crafts through imagination and functionality, experience and aptitude that reach the expressive levels of being an artist.

Creativity, in any form, takes time and patience, and sometimes a little bit of daring. Artisans envision something of beauty and/or purpose and then work at building that something into existence. Whether we wear it, use it to sooth our bodies, or use it to decorate our homes, the work of Artisans make our lives richer in many respects. Artistic creations like these offer us reasons to be happy; they give us something to cherish. Everyone can use that.

We have all indulged in collections of some sort. Someone created those items that we may come to consider priceless or happily habitual. Nick-knacks, treasures, trophies… they all come from some talented individuals, there is no need to shy away and not give in.

At this year’s Bookshelf event, this category is honoured with the presence of:

  • Galaxy Teas – All Natural Loose-leaf Teas
  • SteamGummie – Jewellery & Accessories
  • The Button Brigade – Fun Sayings on Buttons
  • Osnat Wolle – Artist
