Is There a Distinctly “Vancouver” Watch?
Crafted Vancouver is thrilled to launch their inaugural festival showcasing the best in local, national and international professional craft. From May 4-28, Crafted Vancouver will feature a multitude of events to not only showcase craft goods, but a deeper dive into the craftsperson’s process and how their work impacts our everyday lives.“In a mass-market, disposable culture, there’s an opportunity to revive our appreciation for quality goods and reconnect with those who produce them.” says Carrie Ross, the festival’s Director. “Our aim is always to celebrate unique pieces in smaller quantities with greater meaning.” Photo provided by: Richard OlakWe’re most looking forward to celebrating craft at the Balvenie After Hours Series at Hycroft Manor. Join Crafted Vancouver and hosts Jamie Johnson, John Atkin and Brad Turner for an engaging night of talks and tastings.
