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 Crafts Wild Arts Collective and Tanya List Design have come together to create this neighbourhood space. Our space can be rented for large and small events, parties and just a really good time. 

Come for a coffee, shop, do a class or even just view the gallery. Everyone is welcome.





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, ceramics and more. We do in-house birthday parties, family painting projects, specialty corporate groups and monthly art nights.

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

COVID-19 Update: Regular studio classes run each season with limited class size and sanitized, safely spaced work stations.  Art kits for children and adults available for those that would like to remain at home. 

We offer curbside pickup or home delivery within Muskoka.
