On July 19-20, 2014, PULP: Reclaimed Materials Art and Design and Senayah Design returned to BIG on Bloor Festival for the second year of Card-yard – a free dynamic activity hub for all ages.
6 PULP Pavilions and 2 guest designs’ pavilions stood one night and two days (including a full day of rain) before being taken apart and stored for next year’s event.
Special thanks to the event sponsors, Castle Point Realty Partners, and to Fabric Fabric for providing excellent service and advice. We are grateful to Alexanian Flooring Limited for providing us with all the cardboard tubes! – we love you all!
Extra special thanks to the dedicated team of volunteers who worked specifically on this project: Susan and Anthony Smith (Architectural Artisans), Claire Mercer, Ksenija Spasic, Robyn Lewis, Alisdair MacRae, Armi De Francia, Bruce Gavin Ward, Cheryl Lim (Elephant Shoes), Doris Purchase, Wyatt Armstrong, Cheryl Stevens, and the BIG on Bloor management and amazing volunteers without whom we would never have been able to make all this happen!

This event is in partnership with Senayah Design, BIG: Bloor Improvement Group, and Bloordale BIA
