Once a year is just not enough to share our creations with you, so we’ve created a Spring/Summer event to go along with our ever-popular December winter holidays event. Both events are free to the public, family-friendly, and full of the creations of local artists and makers. Our warehouse is a lovely old building, but does include stairs and uneven, old floors, so please plan accordingly. Parking is available on-street or in our parking lot (for the day of event only) which is located between our big brown warehouse, and the little brown building on the corner of 14th Avenue NW and Leary Avenue.
Summer Open Studios & Artist Market
Warming weather, a little sun maybe, and it’s time to open the doors (and the windows) and kick off Summer a bit early with our Summer event. 2021 marked our second open air market during the pandemic, and boy was it a hot one (literally 110 degrees!). We’ll be back inside, so you can wander our halls, and pop into our studios to get a sneak peek at our spaces, our process, and what’s fresh off the easel/pottery wheel/sewing machine/presses, etc. The 2022 event is June 3 & 4th; see the homepage for details, and follow along with updates on Facebook or Instagram.
December Holiday Open Studios & Holiday Art Market
Just in time for winter holiday shopping, come take a peek inside our artists studios and shop for holiday gifts, art, decor, and more! This is one of the oldest running annual art events in Ballard. The event now takes place on the first Saturday of December, December 3rd, 2022. We will also have a smaller happy hour event this year, on Friday December 2nd from 5 until around 8pm. See the home page for participating artist list for Saturday and for Friday.
