Join Crafted Vancouver for our second edition of Crafted in the Valley, a fun-filled day trip on a guided bus tour to two studio settings and a winery. Stops include a visit to a pottery studio and the source of beeswax candle making, where you can stock up on your summer patio supplies. We end the day at a local winery that includes a wine tasting and refreshments from local artisanal food shops. At each location your host will give you a guided tour & talk where you can gain an appreciation for the dedication each brings to their craft.
