Thorp Warp 2019

Thorp Warp 2019

Visit our Art Market during the first ever Thorp Warp for a cozy autumn weekend of art, craft, food, and fun! Our company began with our founder's vision of supporting herself with her handmade ceramic craft. 16 years later and 30 Tile Elves strong, Mercedes can say that her vision has become a reality. Now she focuses on inspiring other artists to follow their dreams. In honor of our entrepreneurial company values, we cannot wait to host this arts and crafts market event featuring an incredibly talented community of makers and shakers!

The Thorp building has brought makers and artists to the Northeast Arts District for decades. The 1902 building is famous for being the birthplace of Art-A-Whirl® and has welcomed many new artists and small businesses to create one diverse community of makers. Share in the history and beauty of the Thorp building and join us for the first ever Thorp Warp!
