holiday craft at the courtyard

Holiday Craft at the Courtyard.

our first ever Christmas Craft Fair.

We know how hard it is to plan getting to a craft fair that’s only on one day of the year…

So we decided to hold our Christmas craft fair for a month and a half. It will run until Dec. 31.
We are known as the largest all clay gallery on Vancouver Island with over 25 Amazing potters local to the Comox Valley, but this year we decided to invite a number of our favourite local artists who work in other mediums to join in our amazing art and craft community and display their art for a special Christmas art fair.

Among the works you find at the gallery specifically for this explosion of craft include fused and blown glass, wooden inlaid treasure and wood turned bowls and the most magical of turned ornaments, woven scarves and blankets and tea towels and other gorgeous fiber art, silver jewellery, recycled jewellery from bicycle parts (talk about unique), art cards, paintings, all of which are exquisite and great as a gift all by themselves or as an accompaniment to another gift and of course a huge assortment of handmade pottery, both functional and decorative for every budget in the Comox Valley. There are so many truly wonderful gift options for friends, family and don’t forget yourself this year at our Holiday at the Courtyard Craft Fair! It’s an art show and craft sale that will take you right through to next year.

When you walk into the gallery, you’ll smile at all the amazing possibilities you’ll find for unique gift giving under one roof; ALL LOCAL and ALL HANDMADE.
It’s a great way to support local artists, buy local, and give something this year that is truly individual and special that won’t be duplicated or mass produced in a foreign country.

We are always finding ways to be involved in giving back at The Potters Place Gallery, and this year we also have the sweetest angels and gnomes made by local artists and 100% of those purchases go directly to a community fundraising project. You can’t go wrong this season, when it comes to finding something perfect and special and unique here, during our first ever Holiday at the Courtyard event at The Potters Place Gallery in downtown Courtenay.

This year think SUSTAINABLE ART.

We’re at the corner of 5th and Cliffe with easy parking at the rear of the building off 6th street in downtown Courtenay.
