KAMLOOPS — Local artisans gathered in the gardens of St. Andrews on the Square yesterday for the first Artisan Square of the summer. 

Organizer Melody Formanski said the event is an opportunity for artists and small businesses to gain some exposure in the community. 

"We encourage local vendors and crafters," Formanski said. "On the sidewalk we have home-based business folks come in, so if anybody has a home-based business (and) is interested in joining us on a Saturday give us a call or come down and see us on a Saturday morning. Inside on the square we have local crafters."

Formanski said Artisan Square is in an ideal outdoor location for Kamloops residents who love to shop local. 

"We welcome everybody to come down from the Farmer's Market and then come down over here and then maybe go down to the courthouse to the old gift shop there," Formanski said.

Starting next Saturday, July 9, free Tai Chi lessons will be offered from 10-11 a.m. as part of the event.

Artisan Square has been running for 12 years.
