EXPERIENCE 25 DAYS OF EXCEPTIONALLY MADE GOODS.
May 6 – 30, 2019
Crafted Vancouver is a registered, not-for-profit, independent organization showcasing a curated programme of events under the Crafted Vancouver umbrella. We organize an annual 25-day festival celebrating multiple craft disciplines in a fresh festival format. The festival features exceptional contemporary and traditional craftsmanship and craft-based work from official Event Partners who make, feature or sell fine craft.
Events feature a selection of local, national and international makers, the unknown and the celebrated. The festival programme is carefully designed 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.
Our programme is organized into Crafted Vancouver Signature Events and other Independent Events that are hosted by our Event Partners and include demonstrations, exhibitions, film viewings, guided walks and studio tours, workshops, talks & presentations, dining and tasting opportunities, showcasing of outstanding galleries, shops or buildings and a behind-the-scenes look at famous brands.
Our Event Partners include:
- Individual Craftsperson or Collaboration of craftspeople of traditional, contemporary or indigenous craft
- Galleries, museums & institutions
- Craft guilds, organizations and associations
- Craft & design educational institutions
- Cultural organizations
- Luxury houses
- Independent shops and department stores
- Restaurants, chefs and other regional producers of food & beverage.
We look forward to welcoming visitors to our 2nd edition of Crafted Vancouver.
Each year we produce a beautiful collector quality guidebook that includes details of all our events and Event Partners. Please view our 2018 Programme Guidebook here.
We’re a small team of craft enthusiasts, curators, advisors and volunteers who see a tremendous opportunity to revive our culture’s appreciation for quality goods and reconnect with those who make, feature or sell fine craft.
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.
