Based in Halifax, NS, the Gentle Coast is the brainchild of Sara Firby. Since she was a kid in rural Manitoba, Sara has loved creating and making art out of anything she could get her hands on: paint, paper, scissors, clay, glue, beads, wood, fabric, whatever.
When she learned to crochet as a teen, she discovered the magic of YARN! The versatility of a material that can create clothing, wall art, sculptures, jewelry - she became mildly obsessed. Sara made her first loom in 2017 from a wooden picture frame and furniture nails and began learning to weave through online tutorials and a lot of trial and error.
As a queer female artist, Sara is committed to sustainability and supporting LGBTQ+ rights. The practice of making art has always been a way for her to connect with others, to maintain her mental health, and to bring joy to others. All materials are locally or sustainably sourced, with new and upcycled yarns.
5% of profits are donated to organizations that support and fight for queer and BIPOC health, economic justice and representation, as well as protection and recovery of the environment and species at risk.
