The One of a Kind Show has created special sections for fashion, food, green creations, visual art, new artisans and emerging talents. Read on to find out more about these sections and neighbourhoods!
One Of A Kind Craft Community Of Canada (Spring Only)
For over 35 years, the One of a Kind Show has been helping artists and artisans from across the country to make a living out of their passion. We are not alone in our endeavors – this section celebrates the organizations of the Canadian art and craft community, who work together to foster talents, grant opportunities, and increase exposure of the uniquely talented artists and artisans working today.
Deadline to apply: November 1, 2014.
To apply for the Craft Community section, each artist must submit a standard application
to the Spring show, along with the following items:
The name, title, phone number and email address of your reference at the institution who we can contact during the jurying process
Etsy Section (Spring Only)
The 2015 Etsy Section will feature a select group of 40+ talented artisans. Qualified Etsy Sellers will have the opportunity to exhibit at the most attended and most popular show of its kind in North America. Click here for more information.
The place to be for Canada’s trendsetting designers! The Fashion District stages prêt-a-porter style fashion shows each day, allowing customers to make a purchase immediately following a runway presentation. This section is only open to the clothing category.
If your kitchen is your studio, then the Flavours section is for you. In this popular neighbourhood, customers find all of their favourite edibles such as baked goods, preserves, jams, dressings, marinades and sweets.
Sustainability is a rapidly growing trend among consumers and designers, and this section is becoming more and more popular each year. Your creations are biodegradable, recycled, organic, sustainable and definitely innovative.
This section is for first time exhibitors who have less than 5 years professional experience as a full time artisan. Space in this open concept area is sold by the square foot, making your booth fee and your stock more manageable. We supply your carpet and you provide a fantastic free-standing display in-the-round with lighting to showcase your creations.
Visual Art Gallery (Christmas Only)
The only thing you will find here is fantastic fine art in this originals-only section. Acrylics, oils, watercolours, hand-pulled prints and sculpture attract collectors and gallery owners, and wider aisles allow for the ultimate viewing space. If you are a visual artist, this is the place to show your work.
5-day / 6-day Exhibitors (Christmas Only)
At the Christmas show, we offer the opportunity where artisans can participate for the first 5 days or the last 6 days of the show. This option is ideal for exhibitors who cannot commit to the 11-day show period due to productivity limitations and/or travel expenses, or those who wish to try exhibiting at the Show for the first time.
Regional & Group Section (Spring Only)
Are you an artist, artisan, designer or craftsperson who belong to and/or represent a craft council, a community or a regional group? Do you want to collectively exhibit at the One of a Kind Spring Show in a special section? If yes, get in touch!
Past Participants Include:
Eastern Ontario Marketplace
Ontario Crafts Council’s Eastern Gallery
