Make a list and check it twice, there may be a few artists with handmade goods knotty and nice. In time for the holidays, the Eastside Culture Crawl returns November 20 to 23, 2014 for its 18th run. When it began in 1997, the Crawl attracted several hundred visitors to 45 studios in three buildings. Today more than 300 artists—woodworkers, glass-blowers, painters, photographers, textile artists, sculptors, and jewellers—are participating in the annual three-day open house that draws thousands to the city’s creative hub. This is a rare chance to pick up a one-of-a-kind artwork from artists in their creative spaces. Here are three studios well worth a visit: Terminal City Glass Co-op, Lynn Falconer Art Studio, and the Yew WoodShop (formerly the House of Doors).
