Shiny Fuzzy Muddy
Heritage Hall / 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, BC
Saturday, December 12, 2015 - 11am - 7pm
Sunday, December 13, 2015 - 10am - 6pm

Visit this Vancouver based artisan collective annual holiday show at the beautiful Heritage Hall on Main Street. Shiny Fuzzy Muddy formed in 2003 to collaborate in creating events that bring their art to the people. The driving force and vision behind the non-profit collective comes from the group’s four core members Janna Hurtzig, Kari Woo, Arleigh Wood and Frances Dickinson. Initially drawn to each other’s aesthetic sensibilities, they found great support and inspiration in their collaboration and so it has lived on ever since!
