Coordinating an Artisan Fair

What is an Artisan? One who professes and practices some liberal art; an artist.
An artisan is a skilled manual worker. An artisan is skilled in a particular craft, using tools and machinery. Artisans were the dominant producers of goods before the Industrial Revolution.
I am so excited about coordinating the upcoming Langley Artisan Christmas Fair. For quite some time now, I have had a vision to coordinate Artisan Fairs to assist in profiling talented artisans while giving them a venue where they can display and sell their work. So I decided at the end of October to quit talking about it and actually do it…..so here I am in the midst of coordinating my first fair. In the past couple of weeks I have registered 15 artisans to participate in the fair, so only three more spaces to fill. There will be a wonderful variety of unique hand-crafted items for visitors to select from. What a fun way to finish up your Christmas shopping without having to go to the mall and wade through the massive crowds. Plus you have the bonus of speaking to the artisans while choosing the perfect gift for everyone on your list in one stop.

In the next few weeks I will do my best to feature each of the artisans that will be participating in the fair.

The fair will be held at the Eureka Masonic Hall, 20701 Fraser Hwy., Langley from 11 am – 5 pm. For more info you can check out this link http://www.eventgal.ca/EventGal/ArtisanMarket.html
