Share in a little wine and cheese and find out how you can declare yourself a Citizen of Craft!
Citizens of Craft is a movement for those who are keen to develop their own style and aesthetic, those who are not easily swayed by aspirational advertising. It is a movement for those who value the idea of ‘unique’ and ‘one-of-a-kind’. A Citizen of Craft values the rich history and culture associated with craft and seeks to continue traditions in new and contemporary ways. A Citizen of Craft is fascinated by the maker behind the art, their practice and process and is proud to own their work. A Citizen of Craft understands the collective worth of community and appreciation of Canadian craft heritage.

2nd Annual Earring Show
After the huge success of our inaugural show, The Earring Show is back!
This time around The Earring Show will be held as a one night only fundraiser on Saturday, May 9th to raise funds for some much-needed renovations to the Crafthouse! We are inviting jewellery artists from across the province to come together to help Crafthouse to continue to be the best destination in the Lower Mainland for exquisite handcrafted goods. Crafthouse has not been significantly renovated since 1986… To better showcase your work we are expanding the gallery space, putting hardwood floors throughout, reworking the retail floor plan and yes – getting new and more welcoming awnings.
We have received a generous grant from the City of Vancouver Infrastructure Program of $20,000 that needs to be matched in order for us to access the funds. To date we have received a generous donation from Kaija and Erkki Rautiainen Foundation of $533; $500 from Barbara Heller and Jane Kidd earmarked that her annual donation go towards the renovation of our gallery space. The Earring Show fundraiser is the first event we will be holding this year to raise the remaining $18,867.
The Earring Show will feature diverse examples of earrings made by artists in every shape, size, material and concept, and will allow the public to engage with art jewellery for the first time or to add to their collection. There will be a $10 entry fee at the door, which includes 1 drink ticket.

This process based installation is a result of play, mistakes, patterns and colours manifested while exploring ideas of around growth and natural vs artificial – incorporating thread-based pieces reflecting small imagined ecosystems with those that have their own internal logic. This exhibition is sponsored in part by the Ontario Arts Council. We would like to thank Globalme for […]

Inspired by ‘Cabinets of Curiosity’ and Natural history museums, this work explores the relationships/contradictions between art and science, imagination and knowledge, decoration and display. Kidd experiments with varying weaving techniques used for graphic images and displays tapestries as museum specimens.
