We currently have a limited number of openings for artisans at the upcoming Homestead Market on August 12th, which is the second event of a two-part series. The market is located in a well-established area surrounded by Bear Mountain, and the ambiance is reminiscent of the renowned Filber Festival. Our goal is to expand the event and create a similar atmosphere over time.
The center of Caleb Pike Heritage Park is a beautiful orchard surrounded by pathways that connect several buildings. Three of these buildings are considered heritage sites: the Caleb Pike House, made of squared logs and dating back to 1883, the Schoolhouse built in 1893, and the Teacherage. At the back of the park, visitors can find the caretaker's house, which is a replica of the Gregory home, a woodshed made of squared logs, and a museum. The park is the heart of the Highlands community's heritage values, and some of its buildings have been deemed significant enough to be listed on the Provincial and National Heritage Registers.
The park will hosts a collection of skilled vendors who create handmade goods using traditional methods. The event will feature workshops and live music, with more details to come soon. for more info Click Here

Some people may argue that everything is not connected in one way or another but I prefer to believe that everything is connected and that Syngery is a real thing.
Having the opportunity to put on this event is an honor. After two years of uncertainly, it is time we make time for ourselves. Registration is open to the healing community to come to our show.
Bodywork of all types

Here is a little interview with Tracey Yarrell. One of the designers in our 2023 show. It was a great candid chat. The picture quality was not great but the conversation shows how much passion she put into her work.
Fashion splash 2023 takes place in one of the coolest buildings found in Victoria. Kwench, its unique design lends itself to creating one of the most fluid creative shows that we've ever put on. A venue that is comfortable, warm, and inviting. We are gathering designers from the local fashion community to put on a very special post-Covid show.
The local fashion design scene has grown over the years. The most interesting thing about these new designers is they are not trying to copy or imitate other designers in the world. Instead, they are allowing the unique natural beauty of Vancouver Island to influence their material and design choice.

Fashion Splash 2020 was an exceptional show in a unique location. The challenge for this show was creating a beautiful setting for a fashion show. This cold concrete building had been used in the past for ship repair. We turned it into something that would showcase some of Victoria's finest designers. With a great hair and makeup team led by Aaron Bradley for makeup and Mandy Rogers for hair.
Times have changed since 2014 when we could barely find designers for the show. Designers have grown their businesses and their clothing lines and have become much more successful and this continues to be supported by flashing splash.
After a year off. Fashion Splash transformed into Victoria's 1st Fashion Week, held at the Atrium.
It moved indoors into an amazing building, The excitement built as Victoria's beauty industry blossomed.
The entrance to the Atrium ( an office building) was transformed into a show to remember.
15 local designers showed up to show off their creations to the hundreds of locals that came to see them. It was the talk of the town, as can be seen by the links below.
We had more designers come forward in 2015 as word got out that they had a platform to show their creations. The creative community pulled together in 2015 for the second fashion splash and helped Fashion Splash evolve into a designer's runway.
This event featured seventeen designers and some store owners from Lower Johnson St. The main attraction was the local design talent. Victoria loves supporting locals, and they came out in the hundreds to see the show. This would be the last show at the west end of the ship point pier. As funding had come to an end. Maybe is was time to try something new. Something Victoria had not seen before ?
