This week the Capilano University Textile Arts Program is having their grad show at the Ferry Building Gallery on the North Shore. From what I've seen and heard a lot of the pieces shown will be wearable. Pictures of amazing felted, pleated and woven and dyed garments can be seen on their facebook page.
But of course their will be non-wearables on display as well including this collaborative piece by Soledad Munoz and Emily Hill. Isn't this massive tapestry amazing?!?! Go see it and more fibre art at the show...
Opening this Tuesday May 17th, 6pm-9pm
Runs until the 29th
Ferry Building Gallery
1414 Argyle Ave
Gallery Hours Tuesday - Sunday 11-5 (closed Mondays)

Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just fill out the form at the top of this page, or send your press release to me at
