Circle Craft Christmas Market Giveaway

The 37th annual Circle Craft Christmas Market is taking place next week, Wednesday, November 17th to Sunday, November 21st, 2010 at the new Vancouver Convention Centre West. Admission is $12 for adults and you can save $2.00 by purchasing tickets online from the Circle Craft website.

The event features artisans mostly from British Columbia including a few from across Canada and Washington State. With over 250 vendors, there is something handmade for everybody with artisans selling clothing, home decor, fine art and photography, jewelry, food, toys, clothing, body products and leather goods, including one of my favourite vendors, Lincoln Heller from Fiveleft Leather (picture above).

Don't forget to check out the 2010 show features:

Wood Turning Demonstrations
Watch last year's recipient of the Circle Craft Award for Excellence in Craft, Dale Rouleau and long-time Circle Craft Co-operative member, Jason Marlow, collaborate to produce a unique piece of art "Spruce Mermaids" from a slab of old growth spruce.

Totally Amazing Glass
Enjoy free glassblowing demonstrations by some of Canada's top glass artists.

Ballz of Fire Workshop
Try your hand at designing and creating a blown Christmas ornament.

Watch artist blacksmith Patrick McIvor create a sofa-table to be donated to the Sharing Ree (more information about the Sharing Tree on the website)

Student Art Exhibition
Featuring the artworks of young people in Grades 9 – 12, the Student Art Show promotes and encourages student participation in a broad spectrum of visual arts. Celebrating student creativity, the art show provides a great opportunity for young artists to publicly exhibit their work
