MANANOOK
 
Grand Manan New Brunswick Canada
     
 

ARTS & CRAFTS

Every Saturday morning, as part of the Grand Manan Farmers Market in North Head, a wide variety of arts and crafts are available, including photography, paintings and painted crafts, knitted goods, quilts, ceramics, and jewelry. If you are visting the Island in late July, watch for the Festival in Grand Harbour - and the craft sale associated with it.

We are avid collectors, and while we have just begun to explore what the island has to offer, we are most impressed with the photographic works of Sara Wormell (www.sarawormellphotography.com/); the ceramic art of Liza McDonald, the work of the Whale Cove Knitters, and the fabulous hand made quilts available on the island. Check out the new Facebook Group: Million Talents of Grand Manan

The following is a partial list of craft stores, outlets and services, some of which we have not yet had the opportunity to visit or explore.
