Endure Upcycled Designs…Will be on our photo wall on Saturday!

Already?  We can’t believe it.  The new year in Whistler has been amazing.  We’ve had full markets, rotating vendors and a bustling workshop schedule.  The Saturday morning workshops are a very important part of our market and we really appreciate you being there with us.  It’s important to us that you see what our artists do and that you connect with them (and the handmade experience) in some small way.  It shows our full commitment to hand crafted.  This weekend’s workshop is beyond adorable.  Karen from Endure Upcycled Designs has been in the market since just after Christmas kicking it with her amazing kids costuming and her burlap banners.  This weekend, she is running a Tutu Making Workshop.  She also crafted our banner for our pop up photo wall this weekend.  

Whistler is all about celebrating and this weekend is the finale weekend of Whistler Pride 2019.  We’ll have our photo wall ready on Saturday with Karen’s custom upcycled banner. Swing by, shop the market, grab a coffee at the Grill and Vine and share your Pride with a selfie at our wall.  

Hope to see you there!  Our market runs from 12-5pm.

What a holiday season!  Thanks to you and our vendors and our amazing hosts from the Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler we had our best start to the market in its seven seasons.  The hallways were bustling with shoppers and vendors sharing their art.  It was an incredible experience to be involved in.  The decor from the hotel this year was all about creating a magical wonderland and well, they nailed it.

Now that the holiday wrap has been recycled and our waistbands have slightly expanded, it’s time to look forward to new things, exciting things.  There are no workshops for the first two weeks in January.  I think we all need a chance to rest and prepare for the exciting season ahead.  Now time to get outside and enjoy all that Whistler has to offer.

Happy new year and warm regards from the Made in Whistler Market team.

I can’t believe we are less than a week away from our first artist run Made in Whistler Market.  There have definitely been a few lumps and bumps along the way to getting the market in place this year.  Many thanks to the vendors who have signed on for the full season, giving us a beautiful collection of work and showing how much they believe in bringing you this market.  It’s a huge commitment for any artisan to agree to 18 one day craft shows…THANKS SO MUCH TO THEM.  Also a huge thank you to the Westin Resort and Spa, Whistler for housing us and Arts Whistler for the guidance and assistance they have given this year and in the past 6 years.

And…thank you!  You are awesome, you are supporting local and hand made and we are so grateful that you will take the time to come and shop our little market corridor.  We look forward to seeing you for some shopping or browsing, enjoying our artist lead workshops, or even just popping by to say hello.
