Thanks to Monika Warzecha from The Globe and Mail for taking the time to talk to us for her article "West-end woodworkers find it hard to carve out studio space". It's an ongoing struggle for many local woodworkers to find space for their business near the downtown core, we're lucky to have our shop in the Junction Triangle and hopefully that doesn't change any time soon.
Check out the show Losing Parkdale, running until Feb. 26 at the Ontario Crafts Council on Queen; it's curated by our friend Joel Robson as a celebration of the talent of the many woodworkers who have worked in the area and recently been squeezed out.
Of course this is a shift that affects creative workers of many types who need large, reasonably priced work spaces and it would be a positive sign in our city's development if we could work to foster and retain that talent.
Thanks to Ellen Moorhouse at the Toronto Star for her appreciation of Studio North as a whole and for including us in her review of artisans focusing on using salvaged materials.
And we're flattered that the good people at The Grid count our work among "The 5 Most Amazing Things" they found at the Interior Design Show - check out the video clip.
