As an assignment for their Fashion Writing course, students of the Vancouver College of Art and Design were asked to write a guest post on a Vancouver fashion blog. Kristine Wilkinson is one such student. And The Anthology is one such blog. Herewith, her guest post:
If you’re looking for something exciting to do this weekend, check out the annual Circle Craft Christmas Market happening at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Unlike the craft fairs I used to attend as a child with my mom, you’ll be hard pressed to find tacky ceramic tree ornaments and homemade wreaths here. Instead, there’s an impressive lineup of fine jewellery makers, clothing made from natural fibres, handmade soaps and candles, and art made out of everything from wood and metal to glass and leather.
If you’re like me and appreciate someone else doing your holiday baking, there will also be a delicious selection of sweet treats to keep you satisfied as you adventure through ‘homemade heaven’. (Sweet Thea Cake Company)
Here are a few of the market exhibitors I’ll be checking out – and these are just tip of the tree.
Of course, if you see a booth full of hand painted ceramic Santa Claus heads and Rudolph doorknob covers, make sure to stop in and take a peek…if only for nostalgia’s sake. I know I will!
Thanks Kristine! If I were your teacher, I’d give you an A+.
