25 DAYS IN MAY

May 1 – 25, 2020

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, promote or sell fine craft.

Events feature a selection of local, national and international makers, from emerging talent to the celebrated master. 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, showrooms, shops or buildings and a behind-the-scenes look at famous brands.

Our Story

We’re a small team of craft enthusiasts, curators, advisors and volunteers who see a tremendous opportunity to increase the value and relevance of craft-based work. We work year-round to revive our culture’s appreciation for quality goods. Through our festival programming, we facilitate a connection between our festival audience and those who make, feature, support or sell fine craft.

Our passion for fine craft is contagious. We’re thrilled to support and collaborate with exceptional craftspeople and our cultural and strategic partners.
