Events for the Calender: A Night of Social Craft


I'm sure that, like me, you've pulled out the new calender to start jotting down dates to remember, places to be and people to see.  I'm still in the planning stages of my year, but my new Moleskin pocket daytimer is making me feel oh-so organized with lists and goals and ideas for the year!
That aside, I just noticed a great little event happening over at the Museum of Vancouver on January 21th!  A night of social craft (DIY@MOV) is aimed at getting the DIY and crafters to the Museum to celebrate the Cultural Olympiad along with the exhibition: The Art of Crafting.  The evening sounds like a lot of fun with a DJ and bar, along with materials and workshops while connecting with other Makers.  Opus is sponsoring the event, so there will be lots of arts and crafts materials on hand. Furthermore, the write-up boasts that some of the work might even remain as part of the exhibition- might even count on the CV if that's the case.  $15 at the door- 7pm start!

Photo above is the lovely work of Arron Lowe, Toronto-based glass artist, and his bottle forms titled 'Horizon'.  Looking forward to seeing them for real!

These pieces are so dreamy.

P.S. I'm totally jealous of Vancouver right now... I wish we had something like this happening in San Francisco.
