EXPERIENCE 25 DAYS OF EXCEPTIONALLY MADE GOODS.
Crafted Vancouver is dedicated to showcasing exceptional contemporary and traditional craft from a selection of local, national and international craftspeople, the unknown and the celebrated. We organize an annual 25-day festival celebrating multiple craft disciplines in a fresh festival format. Events are carefully selected to cultivate interest and appreciation of fine craft between skilled craftspeople, the dedicated collector and an emerging craft appreciator market in intimate settings and encounters.
This year we invite you to dig a little deeper as we expand our reach. Our theme “Made to Discover” inspires us to set out and investigate the many places craft is present. Whether it’s during visits to independent studios or the backstage of an opera company, viewing the skilled craftsmanship of our architectural treasures or learning about the building of wooden boats, festival participants will experience a thoughtful selection of craft through the many events on offer during our inaugural year.
Our aim is always to celebrate unique pieces in smaller quantities with greater meaning.
We are delighted to present this year’s festival of events.
We’re a team of craft enthusiasts, curators and advisors. We see a tremendous opportunity to revive our culture’s appreciation for quality goods and reconnect with those who produce them.
Our passion for supporting fine craft is contagious. We’re thrilled to share exceptional craftspeople, a behind-the-scenes look at their process, and the beautiful objects that result.
