SHOP CRAFTY: bookhou's new store
Long term readers of the TCA will know that I have a major crush on the work of John & Arounna of bookhou design. Both fine artists and craftspeople with superb style, they were the first makers I interviewed for the blog, and top on my list to carry in my webshop, goodEGG industries. So when I heard they would be opening a gallery/studio/store on Dundas I couldn't wait to see how the space would take shape.
bookhou opened quietly in late november, and is now open for your visits thursday, friday, saturday from 11-5pm (or by appointment). In addition to all of the amazing bookhou gear such as felt trivets, linen bags and homeware, and wooden children's furniture, Arounna's textile work and John's paintings are also on display. Starting soon they will be showing the work of changing featured artists/designers.
The space also houses the bookhou studios, where clients can come and see where the work is made, and they are currently offering printing workshops limited to four people per class. For more details, visit the website: http://www.bookhou.com or pop by the store!
