For The Creative:
With The Vancouver Home + Design Show’s brand-new WORKSHOP series, you don’t even have to wait until you’re home to get to work! Bring your Pinterest board to life by learning from the pros in these hands-on workshops curated by some of Vancouver’s finest local artisans including Fox and Flourish (Intro to Brush Lettering), Celsia Floral (Wreaths & More), Spool of Thread (TBD) and Lucy Poskitt(Looming 101).
For The Foodies:
Aspiring home cooks, turn up the heat and sharpen your knives – it’s your chance to get schooled by Vancouver’s top chefs on the Samsung Cooking Stage. See Vancouver’s culinary legends and modern masters, plus Cityline regular and lifestyle expert Janette Ewen, as they conduct in-depth demos featuring tried-and-true kitchen cheats, can’t-miss culinary trends, and entertaining expertise. Oh, and you might just be lucky enough to taste some of their creations!
For The Upcyclers:
Bring Vancouver’s best style off the streets and into your home! DIY Runway is your chance to bid on hand-crafted, repurposed pieces created by Vancouver’s top style influencers and tastemakers. We’ve recruited 15 local fashion bloggers, stylists, designers, and boutique owners to draw inspiration from a favourite item in their own closet to repurpose a pre-loved home décor piece from ReStore Vancouver using a curated box of goods from Rust-Oleum Consumer Brands Canada®. Imagine: a wall-hanging inspired by those perfectly ripped jeans, or a one-of-a-kind lamp inspired by that amazing sequined skirt worn on New Year’s Eve. 100% of silent auction proceeds benefit the Habitat for Humanity Society of Greater Vancouver to help provide local families with a safe, affordable place to live.
For The Crafty:
Flock to Vancouver’s very own nod to London’s world-famous street market Portobello West, where you’ll discover local artistry, superior craftsmanship and a wide array of antiques and collectibles. Shop from a selection of unique purveyors and goods, including jewellery, sustainable textiles, and hand-poured candles from Vancouver’s top emerging artisans at this eclectic pop-up – chock-full of original pieces that are bound to catch your eye.
