Please join us in wishing Happy Birthday to our superstar volunteer Emma Gardner, shop assistant Vilya Ou and our board president Deb Dumka! Every member of our team is unique and we’d like to invite you to get to know them better in their answers to our fun Q and A below. We recently shared Emma’s Q and A when she joined our team, so if you missed it you can read it here.

As well as being one of our shop assistants Vilya Ou is also a talented jewellery artist. Some of her designs will be in our upcoming fundraising event The Earring Show!

What inspires you to be part of the Craft Council of BC’s team?

I want to know how the public wound response to the artistic products. This is the main reason that I became a volunteer in Craft Council.

Can you share a fun fact about yourself?

I am a jewellery artist myself.  My work is more sculptural and artistic compare to the jewellery people have been wore a lot.

What is it about craft that you are most passionate about?

To me, craft is a touchable form of art. It is a form of art, which is functional and practical.
