Event description

Description

Art & Craft Social is a FREE community event welcoming a diverse group of adult artists, makers, designers, and craftspeople of all levels of experience to share and create their work in a social setting. Each attendee should bring their own small creative project such as stitching, sketching, crocheting, collage, etc, to work on at Art & Craft Social. The event is inspired by crafternoons, stitching bees, and art jams people host as private get togethers in their homes with friends. We're turning it into a publicly hosted meet up where all are welcome. The Social provides an opportunity to meet new people, get inspired, and learn something new through exposure to the creative work of each person’s project.

Please RSVP through eventbrite to attend because space is limited.

The event is hosted and organized by Barb Wong and Rachael Ashe, two friends with a passion for making things with their hands. The Social was formerly hosted at Hot Art Wet City until the gallery closed its doors in 2017, and we're bringing it back again!

Rachael Ashe is a multidisciplinary artist and maker, with a background in administration and community event planning. She was a volunteer with Creative Mornings Vancouver for three years, and organized numerous community events at Hot Art Wet City gallery including the Hot Talks speaker series, and Art & Craft Social.

Barb Wong is a community dietitian by trade and an avid maker at heart. She is interested in all things food-related and dabbles in fibre arts such as knitting, weaving and sewing. She believes strongly in community development through capacity building and skills sharing.
