Christmas Mumming? – The Jannies are coming to Town
Any Mummer’s ‘lowed in?, will be the questioned asked as these two jannies approach the door of a neighbour at Christmastime in Rural Newfoundland & Labrador.
The exquisite detail and skill by the local crafter belongs on a wall at The Rooms (www.therooms.ca), which hosts the Provincial Art Gallery. The product should be sold at their gift shop and other high-end outlets.
We have an abundance of local talent when it comes to craft producers on the Great Northern Peninsula. Many are hobbyists with few selling into commercial markets. However, there is untapped opportunity for product development and to sell culturally significant items at local, regional, provincial, national and international outlets obtaining a Fair Trade price.
If you produce an art form or a craft and would want to be like the mummer’s hoping to be let in – post a comment, share your story or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. The world can be your marketplace!
