Artisans’ Village – A Peaceful Enclave of Talented Craftspeople

26 Jun Artisans’ Village – A Peaceful Enclave of Talented Craftspeople

artisanVillageMariposa Folk Festival is renowned for its wide range of folk/roots artists, with 100+ performances of every kind on its 11 stages including music, dance and spoken word – but there’s lots more than that going on at Mariposa Folk Festival!

In fact, the mandate of the Mariposa Folk Foundation is “The promotion and preservation of folk art in Canada through song, story, dance and craft”, and one of the ways we live up to the craft part of that broader mandate is by presenting 50 of the finest craft artists, selected through an adjudication process, in our Artisans’ Village.

This area of the festival is an appealing, peaceful enclave, full of talented craftspeople ranging from instrument makers to carvers and weavers to drum makers, potters, jewelers and everything in between, with their wares on full display. This year’s array of artisans is one one of our best ever. Take a stroll through the relaxing setting of the Artisans’ Village, and take some time to browse the booths and tents. You will find a rich collection of beautiful, inspiring and interesting works.

Here’s what we have in store for Mariposa Folk Festival 2013. To see selected samples of the work of these artisans, please visit the Artisans’ Village Listing on our website.
