Craftwork on Display
The Cayman Brac Heritage House held its first Heritage Market on 12 June. The front lawn of this historical building held an impressive array of island craftwork, plants and tasty treats.
Local artists included Annalee Ebanks who exhibited handmade thatch items such as hats, coasters, fans, slippers, handbags and more. Juliette Medeiros presented a striking jewelry collection, as well as intricate coral rock carvings.
Famous for her underwater photography, Nina Banks also featured some of her photos for sale. Kathleen Bodden-Harris from Heritage Designs provided an assortment of goodies, while creative ornamental crosses were offered by artist Dakota LaNess.
Organizations such as The National Trust and the Cayman Brac Business & Professionals Women's Club were also on hand to sell items and snacks.
The event attracted visitors to the island and they were delighted to take part in a raffle which entitled winners to a free item from any table at the end of the day. Mother and daughter winners Cha Che and Kathleen Moore were especially pleased with a lucky sea bean necklace by Juliette Medeiros and a thatch handbag complete with threaded raffia flower from Annalee Ebanks.
Most vendors were pleased with the market's overall outcome and enjoyed the time spent showcasing items and socializing. Plans for the next Heritage Market are already underway.
