The Eastside Culture Crawl, Vancouver’s visual celebration of art, creativity, and community, returns November 20th to November 23rd as it is extended to four days for the first time ever. The culture crawl welcomes you to studios, homes, garages, and other creative spaces in Vancouver’s Eastside, where you can meet a cast of painters, jewellers, sculptors, potters, photographers, glassblowers, furniture designers, and more. In fact you can visit with 375+ participating artists in 70 buildings throughout the community during the Eastside Culture Crawl this year.

Terminal City Glass Co-op

11 artists from Terminal City Glass Co-op are participating in this year’s Eastside Culture Crawl. Terminal City Glass Co-op was founded in 2012 as Canada’s first and only non-profit, co-operative glass arts facility. The Co-op is home to some of Canada’s top, award-winning glass artists, who are able to practice their medium in a fantastically, creative space.

Co-op artist Brad Turner

After the Eastside Culture Crawl wraps up, Terminal City Glass Co-op will host two timely “Make Your Own Glass Ornament” workshops, on November 29th and on December 13th. Participants get one-on-one time with expert artists to create their very own Christmas tree ornament, picking their own colours and using a variety of tools to shape and blow the glass into a delightful decoration.

If you would like to do a Make Your Own Glass Ornament workshop, I have 2 passes to give away for the December 13th session (value $110). Here’s how you can enter to win:
