Oak and Umber Artisan Studio

Oak and Umber Artisan Studio specializes in high-quality, hand-crafted leather goods. All products are made here in Saskatchewan by artist Kathleen Avram, using ethically source, full grain leather, and a variety of textured and unique fabrics.

Just as each leather hide is unique, so is the process when making each piece. To start, every project requires careful consideration as to what material will be used. Leather and fabrics are selected for their thickness, firmness, colour, lustre and durability. Though preliminary sketches may be referenced to determine style, functionality and size, templates are not used. Once the work begins, the material always dictates how the finished product will take form. Even though a design may be referenced multiple times, there are no two items that turn out the same. All products are measured, mapped, cut, and woven by hand. Parts are assembled using a combination of sewing machine and hand stitching. All hardware is chosen based on quality and durability. Every piece is then polished with a UV-protective, stain-resistant
cream.

Each item that is made strives to showcase the beauty of the material, combine functionality with timeless fashion, and utilize the longevity leather provides. Ultimately, each item is one of a kind!

Sew&Tell Handmade

Sew&Tell’s brand consists of handcrafted sewn and quilted goods, including a wide range of women’s bags and purses, kitchen and home decor, and travel accessories. Bright and colourful fabrics often with a boho-vibe, are the focal point of many of the pieces we create, while also bringing a modern edge to traditionally quilted goods. With each item proudly created for Sew&Tell, only the highest quality of fabrics and materials are used, and are sourced locally from fellow small businesses whenever possible. Each item is made from start-to-finish by myself personally, and sewn together with the utmost care and attention to detail!

I have always had a strong passion for simply making and creating, whether it has been through drawing and painting, photography, paper-crafts, or in my more recent life, quilting and sewing. Through the opening of Sew&Tell in 2013, I’ve found the perfect outlet to be able to share this love for making, creativity, and design with others. What started out as an entrepreneurial adventure during a summer break from university, has now flourished into one of my biggest pride & joys. In July of 2021 I finally made the plunge to become a full-time entrepreneur, and I feel extremely lucky to do what I truly love and to share my passion for handmade with others each & every day!

CANADA LEATHERS LTD

Productions Process: Hides selected are cut with our specialized hydraulic presses, where we have cutting dies built per design, or we cut with a CNC-style machine. We have many specialized machines to ease the work and have invested in automation, whether it be for skiving or splitting the leather down to a workable thickness. Then, lining and zippers get cut to size and sewn into place and edges get turned over or inked/dyed before assembling. We have some designs that have been in the company for well over 30 years, and then during Covid, we slowed down and came up with new designs, which often are thought up by customers who come up with ideas of their own and combine them with our ideas as well and a new design is born. The nice thing about a smaller operation like ours is that we get to alternate work, everyone has experience with all the different stages and equipment that take place, and the work is not overly repetitive this way.

Apothecandy

Apothecandy is the creation of Leiah Bauer, an herbalist and first-generation farmer located deep in the forests of Southeastern Manitoba.

I take inspiration from the magic of the woods around me to create small-batch artisanal goat milk soap and botanical self-care products that tell the story of the changing seasons throughout the year. Growing up, I spent nearly every weekend in the boreal forests of Northern Saskatchewan, which forever etched the love of the woods. The smell of sun-warmed pine needles, the look and feel of moss and lichens, the forest coming to life again after a long, dark winter.

I use natural materials to capture a moment in the seasons and invoke a memory or emotion in the people who use my soap. From the smell of the early spring when the sun warms the buds on the balsam poplar and the golden resin begins to flow to the fading sunlight of the fall when the goldenrod and fireweed blooms. I follow the seasons and ethically wildcraft the botanicals that capture the story of the forest in my soap from tapped birch trees in the spring to capturing the fresh fat snowflakes of a midwinter storm and distilling them, extracting pigments, infusing oils or drying them to craft the colours of the designs.

The base of all of my soap begins with beautiful raw goat milk which is lovingly hand milked from the goats that I share my land with, a partnership that flows through the seasons of life from birth to natural death. I am honoured to share my world with these creatures and to craft beautiful, useful things with the gifts they share.

Soapmaking is a combination of art and science. Many factors like temperature, humidity, milk fat content, and the botanicals and oils used play into how the medium behaves, meaning that each batch and even each piece is unique.

Ruby Reid Fine Fragrance Co.

The story. My name is Sara Lindsay, and I am the founder of Ruby Reid. At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, my dad passed away due to ruthless lung disease. In the throes of grief, I found myself wrapped in a blanket of memories of him, my family, and everything nostalgic. I couldn’t go one day without a reminder of him stopping me in my tracks, which I am eternally grateful for. My memories were all that was left to feel closer to my dad, and each one is a gift that keeps him near. I realized how profoundly important it is to be able to recall our cherished life experiences with those we love because our memories are what connect us forever. Aroma has such a powerful way of taking us back to a place in time in an instant. As a small business owner, I was faced with the difficult reality that I had to temporarily close and reimagine my makeup studio because of operating restrictions due to the pandemic. Weeks later, my dad passed, and I needed something to pour myself and my heart into. I’ve always loved candles and aromas, so I started to learn about making them, and a new passion was born. It almost felt like candle-making found me. Unaware that I was actually searching for a reprieve from the heaviness of grief and my uncertain future, Ruby Reid was born.​ Ruby is my daughter’s name, and Reid is my dad’s middle name. Ruby Reid represents a cathartic journey not only through my grief but of embracing the memories that connect me to everyone and everything I hold dear and have helped to shape my life. Ruby Reid candles, fine fragrance and diffuser oils are hand-poured with intention and purpose, and my hope is that they will connect you to your own memories as you create them through a life well lived.

Blue Neptoon Designs

Throwing clay takes Amanda back to her childhood where her artistic journey began. The feeling of clay in her hands calms her and leads her to a place of expression and thought. Amanda is inspired by many things including nature, geometry, and life experiences. Translating these inspirations into her ceramics gives her great satisfaction knowing that these pieces can be used daily or put on display in a home or place of gathering. For Amanda, being a ceramicist is a lifelong journey and along the path she hopes to inspire others. Amanda sells her work online, through craft markets and galleries. Each ceramic piece uses a mixture of hand building and wheel thrown techniques. Her ceramic mugs are traditional but the shape,
painting technique and handle design are original. Amanda’s original ideas from her paintings are replicated onto her ceramic pieces.

Sabine Wecker

I am a ceramicist. I mainly work with stoneware (wheel-thrown and slab-built) that I high-fire in atmospheric kilns like gas, soda, or wood. I developed a series of garden objects, e.g., little birds or fish sitting on a branch on top of an iron stick, bird baths, floating rocks for outdoor or indoor water features, and urban hens. They are winter hard and elevate every outdoor space. Gardens/backyards and ceramics complement each other beautifully.
I was raised in Germany, where I completed a five-yard education in the ceramic arts with a MasterCraftsmanship Diploma. After a twenty-year break, I dove back into clay at the University of Regina completing a BFA in Fine Arts/ Visual Arts in 2021. I am currently finishing up my MFA program with a focus on ceramics under the supervision of Ruth Chambers at the University of Regina with an SSHRC Canadian Graduate Scholarship. I am also a juried Saskatchewan Craft Council member.

Glazed Over Pottery

Glazed Over Pottery is a collection of both functional and non functional ceramic works expressing my love and appreciation for nature and all it has to offer. It feels like I use the ceramic surface as a canvas for displaying this expression. It’s a joy to create these pieces and to have them land in the hands of those who can appreciate and use them. Ceramic work is difficult but so therapeutic in its very nature as it is quite physical as well as demanding intellectually in it’s chemistry. Enjoy my pieces and I have loved my time spent at Bazaart every year I’ve attended. Thank you.

Anne Mclellan Pottery

My work in clay is a continuous exploration of pottery forms that reflect function in different ways. My pieces are made with low-fire and medium-fire clays using wheel-thrown and hand-building techniques. I use overglaze /underglaze techniques to create whimsical designs and patterns inspired by the natural world. I make traditional forms such as bowls, mugs, platters, teapots and vases, which have many surfaces to work with.

Wildfire Ceramics

Wildfire Ceramics hand-builds whimsical and functional pieces; from mugs to wall hangings. The work is inspired by mythology, fairy tales, and the natural world.

Terri Ekvall Ceramics

I make unique pieces of ceramics that bring joy and are a pleasure to use. I draw inspiration from some of my favourite stories and nature. The hand-drawn and painted images of mushrooms and caterpillars smoking hookahs were inspired by Alice in Wonderland. While images of plant life and insects are inspired by the garden. Small personal touches and attention to detail make each piece a unique work of art designed to enhance your daily rituals with joy and love. I have been primarily working in porcelain and creating the whimsical drawings and paintings using underglazes that are then covered with a clear glaze.

HANDCRAFTED POTTERY by TOM TILFORD

I have been making Pottery in my home studio off and on since 1980. I have participated in several juried Art Shows and Craft sales. I have participated in Bazaart 2 years ago and Evergreen Craft sale in Prince Albert since the 1980s. I create functional pottery featuring plates, mugs, bowls, Urns and garlic pots. I mix my own glazes that are all food-safe, dishwasher friendly and microwave-safe.

Deb Vereschagin Pottery

I am a production potter specializing in hand-carved wheel-thrown and hand-built pieces. I prefer to make my own glazes and only choose options that enhance my carved surfaces. The majority of my work is functional kitchenware. However, I like to include fanciful seasonal and outdoor pieces to add a little flair. I am also a multiple award winner in the Saskatchewan Craft Council “Dimensions” juried show.

Prairie Potter

Ron Kurenda was a founding member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council in 1975. In 2008, after 35 years of marketing work for 40 to 50 other Saskatchewan artists, they retired from their retail pottery shop in downtown Saskatoon. Ron’s first love was functional work: purposeful pieces which are a joy to own, a pleasure to use, and a tasteful gift to give others. It is with great attention to detail and function that he carefully handcrafts each distinctive piece. Ron mounted a solo gallery exhibition at the Francis Morrison branch of the Saskatoon Library in 1986. In 2009, 120 Kurenda pottery pieces made their way to the Canadian Marketplace at the Cheongju
International Craft Biennial in Cheongju, Korea.

Burrowing Owl Pottery

I have always been drawn to art and especially art that reflects the environment. My belief that an object that is functional can also be beautiful is what motivated me to begin creating ceramics. I hand build and throw on the wheel. Mugs comprise a large body of my work but I love to create more. I became a juried potter because I believe in creating quality pieces that others can enjoy. As a born and raised Saskatchewan artist I also create pieces that reflect aspects of and my love for my province. I use a variety of clays, methods of surface decoration and love to incorporate sculptural aspects when that special project presents itself.

Born and currently working in Altona, Manitoba, Shaun has always been surrounded by pottery. He’s the son of Marlene Dyck – a successful potter of 45 years. Never having been formally trained, Shaun is self-taught and has potted for over 25 years. His talent is continually improved through seeing every workday as a school day, finding uses for pottery in the real world, hard work, and honing his work for ever greater beauty. Influences of the angular, geometric nature of the work inspire his individual wares that are, on one hand, designed and reproducible and, on the other hand, possess a simple character that is uniquely their own.

Halliegator Handmade

Hi there, I’m Quinn Folk, owner and maker of Halliegator Handmade. I began making children’s clothing during COVID while being stuck at home on maternity leave with my daughter. I found with many common clothing brands, they did not fit properly, and the length of wear was minimal. Due to this, I focused on creating clothing that was functional, fashionable and lasted longer. I also wanted to focus on sustainability and created ultra-absorbent, organic, reusable nursing and menstrual pads for women. I am proud to be able to share my clothing passion with not only my children but others as well!

Rebecca King Fashion House

A clothing designed never stops working, and I am always taking inspiration and mental notes from the world around me – textures, colour combinations, details, etc. The process for a new piece starts in my home-based studio with initial design sketches and concepts. I personally draft, sew, and test all my prototypes and typically run through as many as six iterations as I evolve and hone in on the concept. I refine the pattern until I have a final design sample that I am happy with, and then I send the pattern/sample package to a small-scale contract factory either in Vancouver. The factory will prepare a production sample and grade the pattern into the required sizes. Once I have approved the sample and pattern, production begins, which inevitably includes troubleshooting along the way. Once the full production run is completed, the finished garments are shipped (Vancouver) or picked up (Saskatoon), and the final merchandising tasks are completed to prepare them for the sales racks. Garments are sold direct-to-customer either via our website, pop-ups and tradeshows, or our storefront inSaskatoon.

Sova Design Millinery

I have been a millinery artist for over twenty years and have added a one-size-fits-most linen clothing line to my repertoire.

Finding my long lost family in France in 2020, i was surprised to find that my grandfather i never knew was also a Hat maker in the famous French Mossant hat company. Recently, my hat was chosen by the world-renowned hat designer Stephen Jones (Dior) to be included in a fashion show in Chazelles-sur-Lyon at Atelier Musee du Chapeau, where I was able to meet my idol and share my story.

Northern Steppe Apparel

Northern Steppe Apparel was born from a passion for creating unique, handmade, and hand-dyed clothing made with sustainable materials. I am a home economics teacher by trade but have always kept up with practicing my craft and thus Northern Steppe Apparel was born. I source the most sustainable fabrics possible, and I hand-dye many pieces of my clothing. When I dye my own fabric, I use snow to do so for a unique print and dye colourway. I do use some prints, but when choosing printed fabric I order from the most local and sustainable sources as possible. I make clothing for all ages, but my predominant buyers are buyers for my children’s designs. Northern Steppe Apparel offers unique, handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces for both adults and children to wear. Only one person (myself) is involved in all steps in creating the items I do and all items are created in small batches.

I am a Saskatoon-based clothing designer and textile artist. I have been working and designing with textiles for more than 40 years.

Combining old-world sensibilities with contemporary design, I create garments that have timeless and enduring appeal. Found and naturally dyed fabrics add accents to one-of-a-kind pieces. My work with natural dyes, including a line of naturally dyed scarves, explores an infinite palette of colour as I create and discover nuance and variation with each encounter of the dye vat. Along with natural dyes, I incorporate screen printing, block printing and hand embroidery. My extensive travels in Europe, Southeast Asia, Japan, India, and Africa have given me an appreciation of textile traditions from around the world. I understand textile as legacy, giving context to the importance of heritage, tradition, and community.

The yarn I dye is intended for a wide variety of crafting styles, including knitting, crocheting, and weaving, and can be used for clothing garments, accessories, kids’ toys, etc. I also sell shawls that I have woven on my loom using my hand-dyed yarn for those who may not craft themselves but would like to purchase a finished project for themselves or as a gift.

Woven by Vivian Textiles

Weaving, for me, is a continual exploration of the interaction of colour, weave structure, and design. I love to experiment and draw on my background in natural science and visual art. My passion is to create high-quality quality, unique, utilitarian items to be worn or used in the home. This includes scarves, shawls, cowls, throws, towels, washcloths, baby blankets, rugs, table runners and table mats. I am inspired by the rich diversity of contemporary and historic weaving. Typically, I start with a sketch, which I then refine using weaving software. I also love to play with visual variations at the loom. My main tool is a substantial 8-harness Leclerc Colonial 1 Floor Loom. It gives me considerable scope, the refinement to work with very fine fibres and the solidity to handle heavy wool. I use natural fibres, including bamboo, merino, silk, cotton, linen, hemp, ramie, alpaca, and wool, and I am particularly drawn to fine yarn. I
aim for appealing hand and drape in my weavings, especially in my scarves and shawls. I also experiment with natural dyes, which are starting to appear in my weavings.

When I begin creating, my stresses melt away, and internal peace is achieved.

Bevels & Blooms Glass Art

I have been creating art out of glass for 40 years now. I started with stained glass and then crossed over as fused glass has come to the forefront In the last couple of decades. I create decorative and functional pieces using both methods. My product line contains everything from suncatchers and garden ornaments to framed art pieces and dishes. I have taken several classes and workshops through the U of S, the Saskatoon Glassworkers’ Guild and the Glass Expo in the States. This has enabled me to keep up with new products and techniques. Nothing is better than learning the basics of a new technique and then taking it back to my studio to put my own spin on it. I love to push the boundaries and find out what happens. There is no other medium like glass. Your piece can be altered by many factors, such as layering colours, adding different amounts of heat or having the presence or lack of light when displayed. To this day, I always look forward to opening up the kiln to see what happened. I am a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council. I take part in several shows during the year (ie Bazaart, Wintergreen, Guild Show) and sell my pieces in a few storefronts.

Kattail Acres

I create intricate mosaic designs using vitreous tiles, ceramic tile, stained glass and broken china, often incorporating interesting elements such as keys, mirror pieces, and pottery shapes. Ladybugs also have a way of making their way into my designs. I have been creating mosaics for 25 years, and recently, I have been working on “Yard Art,” using building supplies such as PVC pipes to create mosaic garden poles and Kerdi board to create mosaic mandalas. I also make mosaic mirrors, tables, trays and art pieces. I love all the different aspects of mosaicing (is that a word?) – everything from using the band saw to cut out my shapes, to designing and creating the actual mosaics and yes, even the grouting! During the pandemic, I started creating DIY mosaic kits as a way to get my art out to people, and they are now one of my more very popular items!

Glassy Eyed

I’ve been working with Hot Glass since 1999. I use a propane & oxygen torch to melt soda lime glass and sculpt the molten glass in the flame. Each flower and leaf is individually sculpted freehand and is set in a handmade (by me) wood base once the glass is annealed. I’ve always felt a deep connection with nature, and it’s a balance between resilience and fragility. My work is inspired by this connection, especially to the wild, determined plants that seem to grow in the most challenging conditions and the strong bonds and associations we have with them. I don’t attempt to make exact replicas of nature but reflect the feel and emotion of each plant.

Through Glass Images

I upcycle primarily cutlery to make jewellery and novelty items, such as wind chimes and hand gesture key rings. Jewellery is embellished with semi-precious stones. I am self-taught and designed several of my tools. I provide a broad variety of sizes, so I can provide most people with rings or bracelets that fit them. At shows, I adjust ring sizes and change chains on pendants so clients can enjoy their purchase. I also swap beads on bracelets to fit people’s wishes. I also do photography with an emphasis on rural and rustic scenes, especially during winter storms.

My True Luminosity

I create original, sustainable pieces of wearable art from a combination of antique, vintage bits, reworked vintage jewelry, vintage glass and new elements. I work hard to source materials from antique/collector shows, estate sales and auctions, carefully researching the history of each piece before transforming the materials into refreshed one-of-a-kind pieces. I come from a long line of artists; I work in a variety of creative mediums, but making assemblage jewelry is my passion. I romanticize about the history of the pieces I’m working with, I love giving these old treasures new life, much like the wearer each piece is one of a kind, designed and handcrafted by me.

Quirks & Twists Jewelry

I am a Saskatoon artist who creates one-of-a-kind jewelry by repurposing vintage pieces into new, unique designs and have been designing and creating jewelry since 2003. My pieces are comprised of vintage jewelry mixed with new material. Usually, I use one or two vintage pieces as the focal point of a design and add smaller vintage pieces and new items. I love the thought of mixing old with new and using a piece with a history to make it new again and tell a story. The history, versatility and sparkle of each piece are meant to showcase the sparkling individuality of the woman who is wearing it. These pieces can be incorporated into any wardrobe, whether it is casual or formal. My inspiration comes from the vintage pieces that I use. Every piece that is incorporated into my work comes with a bit of history and I strive to try and maintain the history while giving it a more modern look. I find myself looking for inspiration everywhere – it’s a constant mental challenge. My ideas come from several different places, whether it is old pictures and movies, music that I am listening to, my travels or the environment around me. The process of making each piece involves the preparation of the vintage pieces, including the repair of items, the removal of pin backs or earring backs, cleaning, sanding, polishing and epoxying. I then begin the design process by combining these items with other materials until I am satisfied with their look and then complete the piece. I have also begun to utilize my vintage jewelry stash by creating unique décor items such as one-of-a-kind jewelled ornaments, wreaths, windchimes and suncatchers with a vintage flair. This involves a similar process and lots of time!

JLK Designs

I have been designing and creating jewelry for nearly two decades in my home studio. My designs include sterling silver, 14kt gold and rose gold-filled earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, bangles and rings. I enjoy incorporating unique elements into my designs, such as gemstones, Swarovski crystals and beads, semi-precious beads and cabochons, and unexpected patterns. I draw inspiration from a variety of sources including nature, architecture, and fashion. Each piece begins with the raw materials and is then hand-crafted by myself with care and attention to detail, ensuring that it is both beautiful and durable. While my designs and skill level have progressed over the years, my dedication to providing high-quality pieces to my customers has never wavered. My jewelry is characterized by its minimalistic and simplistic design that is versatile enough to wear for any occasion, whether you’re heading out for a coffee catch-up or a fancy dinner date. I have always been drawn to the art of jewelry making. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is seeing how my jewelry resonates with my customers. I love hearing stories about how a piece of jewelry I
created has become a cherished keepsake or a symbol of a special moment in someone’s life. It brings me great joy to know that my designs are not only appreciated for their aesthetic appeal but also for the meaning and the sentiment they evoke. The idea of creating pieces that people can wear and cherish for a lifetime is deeply satisfying to me. In collaboration with my daughter, I have taken the JLK brand to new heights by introducing Studio by JLK

Effortless, beautiful, maintenance-free, custom-fit bracelets, necklaces and anklets that are expertly fused to be worn for as long as you want. Offering 14kt gold filled, sterling silver and rose gold selections.

Wanderground

My name is Yasuhiro Wada, and I handcraft 90% of my jewelry in my studio. A small portion of my art is laser cut and then polished and assembled by me or cast elsewhere and polished/assembled by me. I started this in 2024 in order to provide a wider price point so that more people can afford to buy and wear artisan designed jewelry. I believe in transparency in our material sourcing and am always straightforward about where we buy our gems/minerals. I am always striving to look for better sources. I buy the highest quality new and repurposed gems and minerals that I can find, and I research tirelessly. Gems and minerals are a passion of mine, and I’m always aiming higher. I studied in Chiapas, Mexico (2012), with a traditional silversmith as a teacher. I studied Spanish while I studied silversmithing, and I have been making jewelry as a side, and eventually my main income since. I live for designing new and abstract concepts, and people tend to value my originality and concepts. In Japan, one of my main streams of income was custom orders, where my customers brought their own stones. I have had a very large number of custom orders, and fulfilling people’s dreams for jewelry has broadened my skill more than I could have imagined. I would love to continue to provide this service in Canada as it tends to mean a lot to the customers, especially when I’m repurposing heirloom stones.

Vanessa Wraithe Studio

I am an emerging multidisciplinary artist working in a wide variety of traditional and digital media. Through cathartic experimentation, I explore and challenge with every stroke of the brush, pinch of the clay, and word on the page. My art practice addresses a diverse range of themes informed by my interactions with nature and place, my life-long struggles with neurodivergence and mental illnesses, and the societal pressures I encounter as an untraditional and unconventional queer woman. Unconcerned with realism, my process-based works utilize varying methods of expressionism and fuse strategies of representation, abstraction, and surrealism to capture the worries and dreams that form the essence of my lived, shared, and imagined experiences. Influencing consideration and contemplation, my works aim to elicit a visceral response from the viewer.

I am a Saskatchewan mixed media artist. I use painting, drawing, and printmaking techniques to create works that attempt to reflect the beauty and interconnectedness of the natural world. I primarily use fine-tip ink pens and watercolour to create layers of depth and detail to pull the viewer in. I draw much of my inspiration from nature, with a preference for local plants and animals. I’m also fascinated by our interactions with these creatures and the mythology they inspire.

Maureen Bachmann Art

I create uniquely upcycled assemblage art using second-hand items, which I source from my recycling bin, garage sales, and donations from friends and family. My goal is to surprise and delight the viewer by presenting the mundane masquerading as the extraordinary while subtly hinting at the excess of unwanted detritus in our lives. I hope people come away from my booth questioning their own consumer habits and considering how they might reduce/reuse the stuff that inhabits their space.

Jamie Leibel

What I make: I’m a mixed-media artist who has set out to explore and evolve the art of traditional stained glass. I create one-of-a-kind glass art pieces through the manipulation of the light/glass interaction, unique soldering techniques, gilding and both enamel and acrylic paint. The final piece is designed to be mounted on a wall and not hung in front of a light source, allowing infinitely more options for display.
How I make it: By playing with the opacity of the glass and coloured backgrounds, I remove the transmission of light through the glass, revealing the beauty otherwise hidden. Each image uses traditional stained glass accompanied by unique metal soldering techniques to provide not only provide structural integrity but also visual interest as the solder spikes and pools when it melts and cools. The glass and solder are further highlighted with enamel paint and, on occasion, gold or silver gilding. The glass image(s) is mounted on either an acrylic-painted canvas or masonite panel, creating a relief of about 3mm.
Why I make it: As a neurodivergent person, artist and craftsman, I love to explore and push the limits of what is possible. I have always loved working with glass, and I want to truly push the limits of what is possible to show glass’s relevance in contemporary art. In 2023, I had multiple pieces of my glass art juried by the Saskatchewan Craft Council, where I received a
100% for quality. One juror even remarked, “No. I have never seen anything like this,” when asked if anyone had questions. All four jurors strongly encouraged me to continue pushing my craft and further exploring the world of glass art.

Hey there, my name is Kaitlyn, and I’m an automotive illustrator. I studied graphic design at Red River College, and I wanted to bring a unique and affordable option for my fellow car enthusiasts. All of my work is made from digital illustrations using Procreate and Adobe Illustrator on an iPad. With my art, I make prints and stickers myself using a Roland BN20 because although I prefer drawing digitally, I still love to see my work come to life, and I want people to see my art in real life and take that moment to appreciate the details rather than scroll past on their phones. I make hoodies with my art, where all of them are
printed on direct-to-film heat transfer vinyl and applied using a heat press, all done in-house (my home). I also have keychains, but they are small batch orders from a company that can do acrylic work.

My pieces are unique to Saskatchewan (as far as I know, the only one that does this), and I love creating a variety of different pieces. I created these pieces because I love that no two pieces are the same. I have very high standards and love what I do. I can be as creative as I like, as there are so many options with cement, including custom orders, which I love as it connects me and the purchaser even more. Customers always comment that they have never seen anything like it and that cement has never looked so good!

Pueblo Chili Co.

Pueblo Chili Co. is a small-batch hot sauce business from Regina, Saskatchewan, owned and operated by Chilean-Canadian spice girl Raquel Vigueras. We use fresh ingredients to create unique flavours of hot sauce to help you elevate your culinary experiences. Whether you’re using our hot sauces as condiments, marinades, dipping sauces, or mixing them into cocktails, we have the perfect hot sauces for your needs. With varying levels of heat with every flavour, there’s truly something that everyone can enjoy, no matter how big (or small) of a hot sauce aficionado you are! Raquel’s father, Claudio Vigueras Zanetta, immigrated to Canada from Chile as a refugee in the mid-1970s because of a US-backed coup d’état that occurred on September 11, 1973. He was held in a concentration camp before being exiled to Argentina and eventually immigrating to Canada as a political refugee. There’s a song titled “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido” that was part of the Chilean New Song movement that’s near and dear to her heart. It was recorded in 1973 by Quilapayún and was the anthem of the popular unity government, and eventually became the anthem of the Chilean resistance to the Pinochet regime. Music is hugely important in Chilean culture and politics and to the whole Vigueras family. It was only fitting to name the business after something that brought people together to fight for the rights of the working-class people of Chile.

Every wild and uninhibited stroke I make replenishes the fuel I need to find the light and joy in this world.

I have also really enjoyed building a community of artists locally and across other platforms who support my creative side and push me to improve daily.

My art collection has been created for everyone of every age. I believe that art is not just for fancy people. We are all worthy of beautiful and meaningful art. My artwork is described as whimsical, sweet, and romantic. My signature female characters are playful women with charming vintage dresses, striped stockings, fun floral patterns, and everything in between.
At the heart of my artwork is a feeling of nostalgia. It is like that warm, fuzzy emotion that we feel when we think of fond memories from our past. My inspirations come from everyday life. My original oil paintings are my interpretations of beautiful women. These women are usually in motion – whether it be dancing, riding a bike, or just day-to-day life on the open prairies. The woman may look different from painting to painting, but it is her soul that connects all of my work. She is graceful and free-spirited. She lives a simple life and calls nature her home. She
could be any age…17, 34, or 82…but it is her spirit that remains youthful.

Jane's Gallery

The beauty of nature is something that people of all cultures and walks of life appreciate and enjoy. I strive to capture this beauty through the use of acrylic paint on canvas, ready to hang in your home. These visual works of art can calm, soothe, inspire, energize, and promote joy. I paint from photos that I take on holidays, hikes, and walks around my small village. I have been painting off and on for 50 years, and strive to realistically yet artistically portray what I see. The urge to create is inherent, whatever direction that takes, and I feel compelled to create beauty around myself, whether it is planting flowers or painting.

Art by: Raef-Mgs

I am a local artist here in Regina. I have been painting professionally for about 16 years. I am a mixed medium artist; I have a unique style, from street art to abstract. I use acrylic and spray paint on all my pieces. I don’t like to stick to one style as I am forever growing. I like to include other materials within my paintings, adding texture and depth to each piece. All my pieces are based on feeling / music and what I’m experiencing in life. If that’s a feeling of joy or being lost. My pieces are expressions of highs and lows. I like to think of my pieces as visually stimulating. As I add a mix of street art/ graffiti and abstract within every detail. I am a self taught artist as I started with the love of drawing. People and things I have seen. I tried several different mediums along the way till I found how acrylic paints and spray paint can combine a unique look. Taking my paintings and murals to another level together.

Inspired Wood Creations

Every piece of wood tells a story, and it is our passion at Wood Inspired Creations to bring that to life. We will never cut or use living trees for our work. All product incorporated is reused, recycled or repurposed. We source a variety of woods all native to Canada. Oak, birch, maple
spruce, fir, pine, apple, cedar(white, red), poplar(black, white), diamond willow. All our creations are designed and handcrafted by the artist. No piece will be duplicated, and all are unique. The finish we use was developed in 1930, proving its strengths. We prefer not to use epoxy finishes as we desire that you, the customer, can see and feel the beauty of the wood used. We can, of course, incorporate epoxy finishes upon request. We can also do custom work if required. Our goal is to showcase the unique qualities, diversity and beauty of
wood.

Brian Baggett Wood Craft

Brian Baggett is a lifelong musician who embraced a creative outlet of assembling hardwood boxes and related mosaic wood art. After a brief career in construction and remodelling, Brian began experimenting with hardwoods during down times from recording an album. Brian uses the global array of hardwood species and local woods as his colour palette, creating mosaics inspired by improvisational music and sound art. All of his box creations are in as natural of a state as possible: no color-altering oils or stains are used, and no hardware is attached. All boxes are unique, one of a kind and finished with Tung oil and a local beeswax mix. Brian Baggett Wood Craft began in 2016 and is based in Fort Qu’Appelle.

I am the owner of JMS Woodworking Canada, a local business that specializes in creating exquisite wooden products. In my workshop, I personally handcraft each item using rough lumber, which I carefully mill and dimension to meet my specific requirements. Giving back to the community is important to me, and whenever possible, I actively seek opportunities to contribute. My diverse range of creations includes cutting boards, charcuterie boards, jewelry boxes, clocks, fish boards, cribbage boards, cottage signs, and so much more. I take pride in using high-quality hardwoods like maple, walnut, cherry, oak, and hickory to ensure that each piece is not only durable but also visually stunning. With a keen eye for detail and a genuine passion for woodworking, I pour my heart and soul into every creation, resulting in unique,
handcrafted pieces that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

yourself and the Mackenzie Art Gallery to the best of our shared abilities.

Accordingly, we have a zero-tolerance stance on racially charged, ableist, transphobic, or other discriminatory statements or incidents, and reserve the right to remove from our events any vendor, volunteer, or participant that exhibits behaviour inconsistent with our vision and values Attendees, vendors, and/or volunteers who insult, harass, or otherwise interfere with staff and other participants (including volunteers and vendors) may be kindly asked to leave the Gallery and surrounding property.
