Beehive Wool Shop - Victoria BC
By Hand Lookbook 7
The seventh issue explores the south coast of British Columbia, from the cityscapes and waterfronts of Vancouver, to the historical architecture and cobblestones of Victoria, to the natural beauty of Salt Spring and Pender Islands. Conifers and craggy mountaintops, ocean beaches and pristine lakes, and beavers, seals, otters, deer, and other wildlife surround us as we travel throughout the region to meet hand crafting artisans. By Hand chats with knitwear designers Shannon Cook, Sylvia McFadden, and Andrea Rangel about their materials, their sources of inspiration, and what they've been working on lately; meets the alpacas of Hinterland Yarn at their new home on Pender Island; watches Bling Squared work their magic with glass rods and a torch; and marvels as the artist behind Nan*C Fibre Art Studio turns roving into lifelike animals with personality and character.
