Ruth Jones – Master Loom Weaver Demonstration

Inform Interiors

Where: 50 Water st

When: October 20th, 5 to 7pm

RSVP: info@informinteriors.com

We invite you to explore with us the romantic and hypnotic practice of tapestry creation.

On October 20th, we will have a living display in our front window. Ruth Jones, an accomplished tapestry artist who works in the Aubusson tradition and has recently received a commission from Stirling Castle, will be conducting a weaving demonstration on her loom. There will also be a presentation from 5 to 7pm. As a weaver she feels she has a commonality with all weavers of all nations, especially those of the Northwest Coast, who, she says, “look at me as someone who is practicing a craft that is part of their tradition as well.” She weaves images that are sometimes political, sometimes spiritual, sometimes both, but always supreme examples of her technical virtuosity. One such tapestry is on permanent display at the Museum of Anthropology.

The Lost Souls of Gastown

Every night from Oct 17th – Oct 31st
8:00pm
– Cathedral Square

A Gothic theatre adventure on Vancouver’s oldest streets: The Gruesome Murder of John Bray

Tickets here.

Venture into Vancouver’s earliest and most gruesome history this Halloween season on the Lost Souls of Gastown – a dramatic, gothic, and deeply atmospheric 90 minute walking tour led by one of Forbidden Vancouver’s cast of actors. This year, each storyteller shares two new tales, not told in previous years. You might hear the story of Jiangshi, the hopping ghost, the heart-wrenching tale of the woman in the well, or the little-known story of Captain George Vancouver’s sad demise.

Tickets are $25 for an adult. Or $22 for a student or senior. Tours sell out during Halloween so please book early to avoid disappointment. This experience is not recommended for children.
