Sights and sounds from the first monthly Urban Craft show

There are few things in life that I love as much as food and cupcakes. One of them is crafts. With this in mind, you can only imagine my excitement when I found out last month that a new craft show was launching in the Ottawa. As one of the organizers Krista Leben says, Urban Craft is a chance to show off fresh and modern finds from some of the city’s best independent businesses. Being one who enjoys shopping local, I trekked over to the Great Canadian Theatre Co. this past Saturday to see what crafty creativity was being hosted within. 

Below, an inside look into the success that was the first-ever Urban Craft show. Hopefully you like what you see and will head out and support the local craft community at monthly shows in the future. 

The next Urban Craft show is being held at the GCTC on Saturday, October 1. We hope to see you there! You never know what goodies you’ll find…
