At the end of October, Token paired up with BRNT Designs to host The Design Show at the beautiful and unique Vignettes gallery. Local artists and art-lovers joined us to celebrate cannabis and design with cocktails, canapés and cannabis accessories.
Cannabis is about so much more than the stereotype of getting stoned. It enhances experience and creativity by complementing and adding to a well-rounded lifestyle. The Design Show brought together a diverse mix of community members interested in art, cannabis, or just straight up socializing.
Our friends at BRNT are first-to-mind when you think of cannabis combined with design. Their accessories are all made with design in mind to create not only beautiful but functional pieces. BRNT brought in a live artist to paint their sleek and well-crafted pieces throughout the evening.
Guests toured the venue to explore the works of art throughout. If you haven’t already visited Vignettes, make sure you stop by. Vignettes is an interactive pop up gallery divided into highlight spaces, each of which is designed, curated, & constructed by a different member of the local Edmonton creative community. Every nook is a completely different design and each space has interactive surprises if you look hard enough. Luckily for all Edmontonians, the exhibit was so popular they’ve extended the dates to make sure that everyone gets a chance to check it out.
Token Bitters was there with custom cocktails and catering was provided by Daniel Huber of the Edmonton Cannabis Dinner Club. The Dinner Club creates events for cannabis connoisseurs that offer meals that are not infused with THC but designed to complement all the cravings that come along with cannabis indulgence. Daniel brought in some of his favourite choices to make sure party guests were well-fed. Dessert was served up by Happy Hour Baked Goods, with an almost-too-delicious selection of cookies. While their desserts are currently of the non-infused variety, when regulations allow Happy Hour will convert into edible cannabis desserts made in Edmonton.
