About the Market
The McMichael Makers’ Market is an online auction featuring Indigenous and Canadian artisans, designers and makers with proceeds going to support the art of Canada. Participants will earn 50% of each sale while the remainder will go towards supporting the Gallery’s core mission, including exhibitions, educational outreach and public programs. It’s our way of giving back to small, independent Indigenous and Canadian designers and makers who contribute so much to the cultural life of our communities.
The Makers’ Market Online Auction will offer a variety of high-quality, one-of-kind items made by Indigenous and Canadian artisans. Items may include beading, ceramics, decorative sculpture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, paper, plastic/resin, pottery, stone, textile, wax, weaving, and woodworking. Please note, paintings and other forms of visual art (including photography) are excluded from this auction. Items must be in impeccable condition, ready-made but not mass-produced, and must not infringe on any copyrights or trademarks. All items must be priced with a minimum retail value of $50.
