Artscape Countdown: Earth-Friendly Finds!

This year at Artscape there will be lots of options for fashionable and well crafted earth-friendly finds from your favorite BEST crafters. From rings made from vintage buttons and cabochons, to upcycled plate pendants, to cuddly plush friends made from recycled baby blankets, we've got you covered. Please come see us in the DIY section along Charles St. or in the Artists' Market on Mount Royal.
