The Half Moon Market is the creative craft project of Sheila Terra. Government employee by day she works as an Employment Counsellor for the Department of Families. But since she was itty bitty, Sheila has always had a love affair with arts and crafts.
2002 – 2012 Soap selling at various venues, small festivals and craft shows
November 2015 The first Half Moon Market at Luxalune
February 2019 First show at the West End Cultural Centre
Located at 586 Ellice Avenue, The Half Moon Market hopes to establish new roots at the West End Cultural Centre. This venue is spacious, wheelchair accessible and can easily be reached by Bus #14 or a short walk from Portage Ave . Markets are always on a Sunday to ensure free parking for artisans and guests.
How many artisans are excluded from a show when the application fees are in the hundreds? How many craft lovers are excluded when high admission costs are charged to customers? The constant and continued endeavour of the Half Moon is to create a space that celebrates local talent without excluding any artist or guest. This is just a hobby, however a creative community based on inclusivity and affordability is the ultimate day dream.
