Out of Hand Modern Market
Out of Hand Modern Market celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and it’s bigger and better than ever with a curated selection of beautiful goods made by hand by 125 of Western Canada’s most accomplished and talented artists and makers. Buy directly from the creators of stunning jewellery, pottery, fashions, food, wine and spirits, décor and more. New market owner and producer, Bethany Wilson, is excited to present this year’s curated line-up of participants.

“Artists and makers chosen for Out of Hand offer a wonderful diversity of outstanding handmade goods created locally and from across Western Canada. For some, it is the only time they will be offering their goods for sale in Victoria, giving local shoppers a very unique opportunity,” she says.

“Exciting makers and designers from the Vancouver area for instance, including Adhesif Clothing and Red Pot Pottery, who rarely come to Victoria, choose to include Out of Hand among a small group of prestigious shows that they attend.”

Adhesif Clothing, Red Pot and Flux & Stone are just three of the 125 creators you’ll find at Out of Hand Modern Market this November. Live music and an onsite bistro make for a wonderful holiday shopping experience.

In recognition of Out of Hand’s 30th Anniversary, the first 30 people at the door each day will receive free admission.

Out of Hand Modern Market takes place Friday, Nov. 23, through Sunday Nov. 25 at the Victoria Conference Centre, 720 Douglas St. in Victoria. For market hours, to purchase tickets online, and for more information including a list of participating artists and makers, visit:
