It’s been a holiday tradition in Vancouver for the last 45 years! A kick-off to the season, Circle Craft Christmas Market returns with over 300 artisans (more than 50 new to the Market) including clothing designers, potters, wood and metal workers, glass blowers, jewellers, toy makers, candle and soap makers, and more.

Circle Craft Christmas Market

When: November 8-12, 2017
Hours: Wed-Fri 10:00am to 9:00pm; Sat 10:00am to 7:00pm; Sun 10:00am to 5:00pm
Where: Vancouver Convention Centre West
Tickets: Available online with a $2 discount if purchased before November 8, 2017.

Formed in 1972, Circle Craft is a BC-run artist cooperative dedicated to providing opportunities for craftspeople to connect with the community. Members of Circle Craft exhibit at the Market; they also play host to makers of fine crafts from across Canada. The first Market took place in 1973 at The Cultch.

The 2017 Circle Craft Christmas Market features artisans from coast to coast: BC craftspeople from communities such as Salt Spring Island, Mission, Vancouver, Kelowna, Shawnigan Lake, Tofino, Prince George, and Halfmoon Bay will showcase the very best of this province. Artisans will also come from as far as Winnipeg, Edmonton, Waterloo, Montreal, Hamilton, Halifax, Moose Jaw, Okotoks, and more!

2017 exhibitors include long-time favourites Wee Woollies (children’s clothing), Cathi Jefferson (clay), Sophia Clay Art, Annie 50 (clothing), Chloë Angus Design (clothing), Adhesif Clothing, Les Guédines en Folie (toys), Anêmone (fashion accessories), The Fishery, and Salt Spring Island Cheese; new exhibitors include Boreal Folk Apothecary, Jumping Creek Pottery, VOILÀ Designs (clothing), Misheo (fashion accessories), Little Rock Jewellery Studio, Vintage Map Co. (pillow cases), Lennard Taylor Design Studio (clothing), Yifat Jovani (clothing), Lisa Fletcher Jewellery, Zoe Bemused Jewelry, East Van Jam, Engin&Dennis Design Studio (glass), and Illo Leather.

The Gourmet Alley’s Grapes & Grains will be back, craft distilleries and wineries, including new exhibitor, Old Order Distilling Co. of Penticton. Also returning, Haejin Lee Ceramics, winner of the 2016 Circle Craft Christmas Market Gold Award for Excellence in Craft.

To round out the experience, visitors will find entertainment by local performers, craft technique demos, contests, and the “Budding Artists” open area where emerging artists will introduce exciting and innovative new work. New this year: Senior Canadian fibre artist Sola Fiedler will demonstrate and teach the craft of macramé. Circle Craft Market has also partnered with Vancouver Community College’s Fashion program to produce a Fashion Show.

From “The Cultch” in the 70s, to “under the sails” at the Convention Centre, to the new Convention Centre West, the Market has moved around Vancouver, but it’s always retained its unique character and mandate to showcase high quality craft via the artisans themselves. Parents who went as children now take their own kids and grandchildren. Circle Craft Christmas Market is truly a Vancouver tradition.
