Tracey Tomtene

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

Photographer Tracey Tomtene is a Make It favourite! She hand-transfers much of her travel imagery onto sustainable wood blocks and into jewelry settings which can be found at local art markets and boutiques in Vancouver and online. When she isn’t photographing or makin’ stuff, she is torturing herself in a Bikram yoga studio, getting her toes salty along one of Vancouver’s magnificent coastlines or visiting far off lands (where she feels most at home). We’re thrilled to have her back, and look forward to seeing what she’s bringing us this year!

What got you started down this path? How have you grown?

The Loving Spoon

DOTW-The-Loving-Spoon

The Loving Spoon is the creative brainchild of artisan Maya Chelmis. From making jewelry out of dried melon seed to crafting her own schoolbags (and her friends’ bags, too!), Maya has loved creating beautiful objects since she was a child. Luckily for us, The Loving Spoon provided the ideal project for her to combine her deep passion for vintage pieces with her love of making things!

DOTW-Jessica-Gowling

Jessica Gowling is the creative talent behind Nature’s My Friend. When we heard her described as a “traditional printmaker, animal hugger, forest adventurer, and creative blogger“, we knew she was somebody we needed to get to know better!

Sarah Mulder

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Sarah Mulder is returning for another year at our Vancouver show, and making her Edmonton debut this year! We caught up with her last week, to find out what she’s got in store for us.

.

What’s your backstory? How did you start making things? How have you grown?

I have been “making” since I was a child. My grandma would babysit me after preschool and roll a massive piece of paper across her table…she said that I was so easy to take care of- put a pencil in my hand and I would spend hours drawing until I went home. I started making assemblage and beaded jewelry when I was a teenager and since then have self-taught myself everything I know. I’ve been selling at craft fairs since I was 18 years old!
