Recommended Artists to Visit During Culture Crawl Weekend

We’re a few short days away from the 20th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl, and everyone I know is in the midst of their last bit of preparation. The Crawl begins Thursday November 17th and continues until Sunday November 20th. It’s a terrific opportunity to see up close all of the amazing creators who live and work in East Vancouver.

This year you will find me as a guest artist in the studio of Propellor Design, at 1120 East Georgia Street which is location C5 on the Crawl map. I will be showing a mix of paper cut work, drawings, and a small selection of paper stitching. Come by and say hi!

1. Textile artists Michelle Sirios Silver and Stephanie Symns of Antipod Workshop located at 1610 Clark Drive or E19 on the Crawl map.
