What is the Annex?

Annex is a place where you can come to relax, be creative and learn. We are a group of local business owners dedicated to expanding the art world through classes and workshops, events and a place to appreciate local talent. As a proud member of the Muskoka Arts and Crafts you will find stunning talent under our roof. Let The Cat Go Fine Art and Craft Studio, CUT Floral, Screamy’s Ice Cream, Savour This.. and over 20 local Muskoka Artists have come together to create this neighbourhood space. Our space can be rented for small events, parties and just a really good time. 





Let The Cat Go Fine Art and Craft Studio provides art classes and workshops for all ages including painting, drawing, fibre and textile arts, printmaking and more. We do in-house birthday parties, family painting projects, specialty corporate groups and private groups.

Beginners are welcome and we always supply all the equipment and supplies to make it easy for you!


Studio classes are posted online-attendance is by pre-registration!

Please contact us to book private groups on a date that works best for you either in studio or at your location. 



As part of our dedication to supporting local arts and culture we have a full gallery inside the Annex showcasing Muskoka Artists! We are happy to support the 20 local artists from Annex Arts Collective. Once inside you will find a unique collection of paintings, fibre art, sculpture, jewellery, photography, ceramics, woodwork and more.

Cut Floral Studio was born out of the uncertain and quickly became a way to reconnect with nature and ourselves. 

Inspiration comes from a single word, a painting or that song we just can’t get out of our heads.

Offering a modern and unexpected approach to floral design while honouring the inherent sensorial beauty of flowers, we commit to sustainability and local products whenever possible.

It’s the basis of our philosophy.​​

From full scale weddings and events to a gorgeous bouquet just because, we offer a range of floral services.

Conveniently located in the heart of Muskoka, we serve Bracebridge and the surrounding area.



We have an incredible space in downtown Bracebridge Muskoka that is ready for your event. We have room for 100 to mingle/stand and 20 for seated. 

Our past events include Muskoka Mud Potters show, our in-house Dinner Series, Art Battle, private functions and business meetings including technical setup.

Let us work with you to design a unique and fun event for your group!

Contact Andrea Balmer to start planning!
