Spreading the handmade love!
We are Andrea + Robert.
A husband and wife event management and wedding coordination team based in Vancouver, BC that share a love for handmade indie craft.
As a maker, I (Andrea) participated in my first craft fair back in 2006 and it became apparent that pinecone art wasn’t what I was looking for. Were all craft fairs like this? Surely not! Inspired, we drafted up a vendor call and stuck it on the board of a local coffee shop. In May 2007, we produced the first Got Craft? event at the Western Front with 20 vendors and 500 attendees over the weekend. Over the past few years, we grew to over 50 handmade vendors and 1700 people through the doors in one day and are now excited to go back to being a two day event with 75 designers and even more D.I.Y. workshops!
Got Craft? aims to bring together a community that fosters handmade and D.I.Y. culture by supporting like-minded events such as DIY @ Museum of Vancouver, the Austin, TX and Vancouver Premiere of Handmade Nation, Swap-O-Rama-Rama 2009 and 2010, Vancouver Mini Maker Faire and the Sweetie Pie Press 2011 Summer Craft Tour. We wanted to curate a boutique event to showcase some of our favourite handmade artists and provide Vancouver the opportunity to shop for one of a kind goods and meet the makers in person to talk about their creative processes.
When we are not busy filling our blog with field trips and crafty things we love, you can find us selling our handmade goods at local events or hosting badge making workshops.
