Back again for its third and best year yet, Maker Shaker 2012 is set to once again be the highlight of the Toronto craft community's social calendar. Save the date, spread the word and get ready to party. Held every spring, Maker Shaker is the Ontario Crafts Council's annual martini-themed silent auction fundraiser in support of the OCC's programming and services. This event draws makers, collectors and enthusiasts for an evening of friendly bidding and mingling. It's a killer martini party, so be prepared for some fun; your ticket includes refreshments, oysters by Oyster Boy and many other tasty treats. Cheaper than a night at the movies, it's an absolute steal and way more fun!
Tickets are moving fast! Buy in advance and save.

3) Crafty Martinis! After much careful "deliberation" the Events Committee has settled on this year's featured martinis: the Glory Hole, Batik Blue and Hammered & Spun. Make sure you try them all! And to help snazz up your imbibing, we'll have a collection of glasses and goblets made by our members available for $20 each at the bar. Up for grabs, this set of 1970's decal glasses, made by Sally McCubbin of TIMID Glass.
Many thanks to our Event Sponsors!
