#Support613: BENCHWORKS

Posted on October 21, 2013 by Jessica Wilson-Frenken | 0 Comments

As many of you probably know, Support Local Month is coming up quickly and we've been busy working on a really exciting project for it.
We've asked 8 Ottawa artists each to design a piece of jewellery. The results have been above and beyond what I expected and I'm thrilled to announce it! We're going to be showing the jewellery for the first time on November 6th at our Westboro location, 430 Richmond Rd.

You gotta come. Plus, chances are, you'll know one of the designers.

(Keep your eyes open for these posters around town!)

We're producing three of each design so they can be displayed at each of our stores throughout November. If you want to purchase one of the pieces, it will be handmade for you upon ordering and we'll be taking orders until November 30th. For each piece sold, 10% of the profit will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank and the rest of the profit will go directly back to the designers. Additionally, 10% of all sales from the Benchworks opening night will also be donated to the OFB.

Our lovely neighbours at the Clocktower will be serving craft beer and canapes thought up by their new Food Director, Paul Dudeau, Kelly Brisson of The Gouda Life is whipping up something deliciously sweet and DJ Lamb-rabbit will be there to play all those hits.
