TORONTO DESIGN OFFSITE FESTIVAL JANUARY 21-27

Visit our Ash Out of Quarantine - Tumbling Ash, New Growth 
exhibit at the Junction's art supply store, gallery and creative centre ARTiculations (2928 Dundas St W) and its companion installation in the window of The Beau & Bauble (just a few blocks west at 3092 Dundas St W).

Design week is off to a good start thanks to the Junction Kick off Weekend and all those who came to check out the exhibits. Our installation will up until February 17 and represents our continued exploration and experimentation with ash wood and our effort to build awareness about the devastating effect the invasive emerald ash borer beetle will have as Toronto loses nearly a million ash trees to infestation. Fragments of our city's missing canopy will continue to be salvaged to create different ideas and objects to inspire creativity and consciousness.

While you're in the area drop by our Open House at the woodshop, Wednesday - Sunday 1-5pm (Friday til 8pm) @ 225 Sterling Rd, Unit 16. 2013 marks our tenth anniversary and we're welcoming visitors to our studio to check out one-of-a-kind pieces, early prototypes and works-in-progress along with numerous items for sale. And while you're in the neighbourhood, grab a coffee and support the not-for-profit creative writing centre, Story Planet at the Intergalactic Travel Authority (1165 Bloor St. W) or some amazing food at Ortolan (1211 Bloor St. W).
