Toad's World takes Bronze!

GIDVA member Diane Jordens of Toad's World received the prestigious Bronze Award for 'Excellence in Craft' at the 2012 Circle Craft Christmas Market in Vancouver BC.

Each year, a guest jury selects three "Excellence in Craft" winners from the show of over 300 juried exhibitors... these awards are based on design, uniqueness of work, craftsmanship and visual impact.

Diane has been making her Toad's World character dolls for over 25 years and is one of our 'veteran' Granville Island Market artisans. Her dolls are collected and treasured by a world-wide clientele. Congratulations Diane... so very well-deserved!

In 2011 Circle Craft Christmas Market, another talented artisan and GIDVA member Michelle Vulama received the Silver Award for Excellence in Craft.
