If you're in the mood to purchase homemade art to buy for the upcoming holiday season, you'll have several chances to do so in Sudbury this weekend.

The Maker's Market and the Downtown Sudbury Art Crawl are both scheduled to take place.

An organizer with the Maker's Market told CBC that the event will feature a number of items by local artists, including pottery, candles and rock pillows, created by artist Sydney Rose.

"These are little pieces of Sudbury," Blaire Flynn said. "They come with the rock they've been inspired by."

Flynn said about 25 vendors will be on-site.

"A lot of inspiration coming from the north here and northern landscapes," she said. "And a lot of locally-sourced materials."

She said about half of the vendors are new this year, including work by the Woodland Sisters.

Meanwhile, the Downtown Sudbury Art Crawl will also be taking place. The organizer with that event said the art crawl is complementary to the Maker's Market, and features 20 locations in Sudbury that will showcase local art.

"We have sort of a walk path [with] a map," Leesa Bringas explained. "Some [works] are for sale, and some are not. A lot of artists will actually be with their work."

Both events start at 11 a.m. on Sunday. The Downtown Sudbury Art Crawl starts at Kuppajo Espresso Bar on Larch Street, while the Maker's Market opens its doors down the street at St. Andrew's Place.
