You may have seen their work during last year’s Eastside Culture Crawl, when the talent located in the shop space within the House of Doors building first opened for public viewing, showcasing a newly unified community of industrial designers. After a year of growth and restructuring, the current residents— which include four Emily Carr alumni—have revamped the space and rebranded the building as the Yew Wood Shop.
