Saskatchewan Craft Council announces WaterFront Craft Art Festival

Published: May 14, 2012

Fine craft, fine weather and a fine way to kick off summer!

WaterFront Craft Art Festival in Partnership with Affinity Credit Union
River Landing, Spadina Crescent East (between 2nd & 3rd Avenue)
Saturday, June 9 from 10am-5pm
Free Admission

The Saskatchewan Craft Council (SCC) invites the public to WaterFront Craft Art Festival in partnership with new title sponsor, Affinity Credit Union. Affinity joins the SCC in promoting Excellence in Craft, and in making arts and cultural experiences accessible to all.

Kick off the summer festival season in Saskatoon at WaterFront - a one-day outdoor craft and art sale. WaterFront features 50 talented Saskatchewan Fine Craft artists, including 15 New and Emerging Artists. Each artist has undergone a rigorous jury process by the Saskatchewan Craft Council, to ensure only the highest quality craft is featured at SCC markets.

WaterFront is happy to include involvement from other Saskatchewan non-profit art organizations:

SCYAP (Saskatoon Community Youth Arts Programming Inc.), which provides art and cultural programming addressing the social, educational and economic needs of youth at risk.

Saskatoon Gifts to Grandmothers: sell handmade bags to raise money for Grandmothers in Africa who are raising their orphaned or abandoned grandchildren.

Sask NAC (Saskatchewan Network for Art Collecting), a group of collectors committed to the Saskatchewan artists including many SCC members. 

To add more great things to this year’s WaterFront Craft Art Festival, artists from EMMA International Collaboration will demonstrate printmaking techniques on-site. The public will have the opportunity to interact with the artists and collaborate on their own original work of art to take home.
