Visitors crowded into the annual Maker’s Hand artisan show as soon as the doors opened Friday at Picton’s Community Centre at the fairgrounds.

The showcase of fine craft features internationally and locally renowned artisans offering unique works in wood, metal, mixed media, glass, jewellery, clay, fibre, photography and wearable art.

The 12th annual event continues all weekend – Saturday until 6p.m. and Sunday until 4 p.m.

Sponsored by the PEC Arts Council, the show is a tribute to inspired craftsmanship and creativity offering one-of-a-kind items offered by vendors who are juried into the show.
