Bushel launches Tête Jaune
On November 7, 8, and 9, over 40 products designed and made in Edmonton, Alberta will be on sale at Tête Jaune - Bushel’s first design show. Featuring 19 designers, products will range from one-off prototypes to established products that are sold across North America.
Designers at the show include Geoff Lilge from On Our Table - whose products are carried by 75 stockists across the globe. Other designers included are Jordan Tomnuk, and Concrete Cat, who both have been named designers to watch by Western Living in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

The three-day show will be held at:

Friday November 7 will be a launch event from 6 pm to 11 pm where
people can ‘meet the makers’ featured in the show. Tickets are on sale for
$10 at Bushel's site or at the door.
Saturday Nov. 8 and Sunday Nov 9 will be open and free to attend, with all products featured either on sale or for order from 9am to 5pm.
As an added element, a portion of the profit from the show will go to support The Drawing Room. The Drawing Room is a non-profit art gallery and artist studio. They are currently raising funds to move into a larger space on 97 St. and 101a Ave.
Bushel is a newly created entity from Edmonton, Alberta. Their goal is to help people foster better relationships with the products they use, the food they eat, and the cities that they live in. With Tête Jaune as a first project and a retail space planned to open later this year, the aim is to build a platform that promotes makers from across the Prairie Provinces. It is their hope that the work helps create a supportive environment for local designers to continue developing their skills and grow their businesses in Western Canada.
