Well Made - Hola! Festival Opening and Fine Craft Auction

No comments:
Crafted Vancouver organized a magnificent celebration and fundraiser Gala evening to kick off 25 days of Craft Events: exhibitions, guided tours and studio tours, Artist talks and presentations, workshops, demonstrations, podcasts and many other signature events. You can see more on Instagram: Crafted Vancouver. Be sure to pick up a copy of the Programme Guidebook, designed by Miya McGrew, for a fabulous visual overview of Crafted all around us.

The Gala is well worth attending, next year, as it gives a clear picture of what will be happening, an opportunity to meet the Leaders and Makers, a chance to help with fundraising by bidding on your favourite, one of a kind crafts, tickets to museums and galleries, heritage house tours, and much more. I think the Smash Serving Spoon, by Stefanie Dueck, is the perfect symbol of this Gala and Festival as servers of all that is delectable in the world of fine Craft! 

So many Community and Business Partnerships and loved the spotlight on Mexico and the visiting Artists from Oaxaca! I met them at these events: Meet the Makers, and Meet the Makers Presents: Pin and Post Pop-Up Shop, both at Heritage Hall, on Main Street, Vancouver.

More partners to be congratulated are: Arturo's for Catering, Granville Island Tea Company, The Wild Bunch Floral Studio, Medina-Pearson Classical Guitar Duet and, for the gorgeous setting and efficient sound system: VanDusen Botanical Garden. The photos tell the story! See you at next year's 3rd edition of Crafted Vancouver
