“Gothic might be a bit of a misnomer,” says Marina Smith of the annual Have Yourself a Gothic Little Christmas crafter fair, which takes place this weekend. “It’s based in a fairytale realm where there’s light and dark.”

This year a wide range of Halifax’s most unique creations will gather at the Halifax Forum (2901 Windsor Street)—hand-stitched anime dolls, soap that’ll ward off the Kraken, a Maid Cafe, voodoo doll-shaped lampwork and loads of steampunk art and jewellery—from 11am-7pm on Saturday, December 6 and 11am-6pm on Sunday, December 7. “The show is made up of people who dont fit into regular shows,” says Smith, whose own Arcane Angel works will be there as well. Tickets are $5, or $3 for students and seniors—but bring a friend on Sunday, and they’ll get in for free.

This weekend is ALSO the 10th annual Halifax Crafters Winter Market—it kicks off this evening at 5pm, and runs all weekend long at the Olympic Centre (2304 Cunard Street). We suggest checking out both of these great events to get a great idea of the makers making awesome stuff in this city. Read more about Halifax Crafters here in Jade Nauss' holiday events round up.
