Vancouver Craft Events

June 16, 2010 - Filed under Events, Vancouver

I know, I know, I haven’t lived in Vancouver for quite some time, but since our nomadic lifestyle keeps us on the move I don’t really have a local craft community to get involved with. So until I do, I’ll continue to post events from Vancouver… or anywhere really, so feel free to let me know what’s happening in your community.

For now here’s what’s coming up in Van:

Etsy Craft Party

Etsy Craft Party Meetup

It’s Etsy’s Birthday and time to celebrate. On June 18th, creative communities everywhere will be getting together to celebrate crafting in their own city. The goal is to get as many craft celebrations as possible happening across the globe. It’s a chance to get together, make art, energize your local community, and of course throw a party.

Got Craft along with local shops, Collage Collage and Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge; will be opening their doors for the Vancouver Etsy Craft Party! Bring a craft project and join them for a day of making, good conversation and to support your local community.

Date: Friday, June 18th, 2010
Time: 2:00pm to 5:00pm
Location: E. 15th Avenue between Kingsway and Fraser Street, Vancouver

What is Swap-O-Rama-Rama you ask? Well, in essence, it’s a giant clothing and craft supply swap where you can take as much or as little as you want. Swap-O-Rama-Rama’s aim is to encourage communities to recycle and reuse clothing in a creative way.

A series of DIY stations will be on-hand to unleash your creativity through the recycling of used clothing including screen printing by Blim and sewing stations by Plush On Main.

So start cleaning out your closet and head on down to Swap-O-Rama-Rama.

Date: Saturday, June 26th, 2010
Time: 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Location: Museum of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver (map)
Admission: $6.00 at the door or $5.00 in advance via Paypal plus a bag of clean clothes and / or a bag of craft supplies to swap.
(leave with all the clothes and supplies that you can carry!)
