Call to Action!


CCBC’s Youth Program offers the exciting opportunity for youth to come together and learn about contemporary craft. Led by local artists working in our communities and designed especially for youth aged 12-17, our Craft, Heritage and Me program gives teens the space to explore the value of craft while learning about the relationship between the artist’s work and their cultural and heritage experiences.


When: January 21, 12-3pm

Where: Granville Island

Learn how three local artists use wood to create beautiful handmade objects! This 3-hour session will introduce participants to woodworking with Peter Braune of New Leaf Editions, Doug Warren of The Wood Shop on Granville Island, and Michael Hamilton-Clarke of Albery Studio Wood Turning. No experience is required. Participants will start by exploring the Craft Council of BC shop – Crafthouse – and will be introduced to contemporary craft from local BC artists. They will then visit three local artists on Granville Island, and end the session at False Creek Community Centre. For more information and how to register for the free session, click here.
