Arts & Crafts in Gastown & Chinatown

Crammed with locally made bright-hued T-shirts, backpacks and ball caps (look out for resident cat Pounce, who likes to bolt for the door whenever possible), Blim's main business is the roster of classes on everything from line drawing to ceramic screen printing. Check to see what's on – or just buy someone else's handiwork from the shop.

Blim also stages regular craft markets throughout the year at sites around the city; they're a great way to meet local artisans and pick up unique souvenirs. Check the website.
