Our shop Kala Collective, within the Annex is operated by Kala House of Colour. Kala, meaning ART in Hindi, opened it’s shop doors at 54 Manitoba Street in downtown Bracebridge back in 2016 with a mission to house a collection of handcrafted goods sourced directly from artisans across Canada, and from around the world. With so much talent right here on our Muskoka doorstep, it wasn’t long before a host of local artists were supplying their wares to Kala. The retail space at the Annex will be an extension of Kala’s current downtown store, with a specific mandate of housing goods made locally. Artists who conduct workshops at the Annex have the opportunity to sell their goods at the shop, providing a “collective storefront” to these talented makers. For visitors, this means you get to, not only MAKE and EXPERIENCE ART at
Welcome to the jungle, otherwise known as Knoop Design! A retail space within Annex offering unique plants, hand painted pots, and macramé for sale. Once you get to know your plants you will want to keep them forever so we have related workshops on keeping your own jungle happy and healthy. A passion for plants in all shapes, sizes, and colours is what makes Knoop Design tick.
What better place for us to be, because let’s face it, plants are living and growing art!

‘Creating a healthier community, one jar at a time!’
We have a simple plan at Annex- if you are hungry you should eat! Each month we highlight food from the local community including gluten free snacks and specialty baking. We are happy to say that by being able to provide a variety of local food, you can test it out with us and then visit their own stores for more! Grab something quick to have before an art class or take it on the road.
Our in-house food means that we would prefer that no outside food is brought in however, if you have a major event- talk to us about catering!
