Toque is Western Front’s annual art and craft fundraising sale. Held every December in the 1920s heritage setting of Western Front’s Luxe Hall, the two-day event features a curated selection of talented artists, designers and artisans and draws 1500 to 2000 visitors annually.
Invited vendors contribute to Toque with wares ranging from books, cards, jewellery, textiles and ceramics, to one-of-a-kind art objects and tasty treats. Featured vendors have included Simply Read Books, Banquet, Contexure Design, Anita Sikma, Fieldwork, Cumulus Project, among many others. Also available are Western Front publications and a limited edition artist-designed tea towel commissioned for Toque annually from artists such as Jason McLean, Cindy Mochizuki, Jeff Hamada, Julie Morstad and Instant Coffee.
Proceeds from Toque support Western Front Society.
