State of the Practice is an annual exhibition highlighting the Vancouver Park Board’s longstanding commitment to artists working in the community to engage citizens in creative practices. From September 17 – 29, the Roundhouse Exhibition Hall will transform into a vibrant, buzzing studio with workshops encouraging artists and community members to problem solve, build, tan, sew, and net-make, while multi-artist collaborations related to shared land and sea cultural traditions unfold.
Photos, samples, and artworks on display will highlight the ‘community studio’ events led by EartHand Gleaners Society at two public park sites—Means of Production and Trillium North Park — both creative commons for growing art-crop materials and hosting seasonal-based outdoor workshops and celebrations.

Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn. I am also a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008. In 2010 I moved away from BC and was (a bit) absent here until I returned in 2016. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events and other local artists and crafters.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just send your press release to us at
janna (at) vancouveryarn.com and specify that you'd like to see it on our blog.
