The Toronto-based organization Maker's Movement recently began publishing a bi-annual print publication of its Maker's Magazine. Coinciding with the growing demand for handcrafted and artisanal products, the magazine celebrates "the slow, present and conscious process of handmade."
Maker's Magazine is a print publication that promotes the work of local artisans and independent businesses. The idea behind the magazine is that by getting more consumers to shop for handmade goods, they help those pursuing a creative path achieve self-sustainability. To help increase visibility for the magazine, the organization is also hosting a pop-up shop that give consumers a first-hand look at some of the products created by Canadian makers.
With the rise of maker culture and the growing demand for handmade goods, Maker's Magazine helps support the work of Canadian artisans and independent business owners.
