signature events

The Craft Council of BC proudly hosts a number of signature events annually. Our signature events are programmed and developed by our staff and volunteers throughout the year, in order to promote artist development, develop community engagement, and highlight the importance of the craft sector in BC.

the earring show

An exciting juried exhibition and sales opportunity for contemporary, designer-makers producing wearable art in a whole host of mediums. The exhibit highlights examples of earrings in every shape, size, material and concept, made by artists across North America. 

mystery mugs

Many of our mug-nificent artists have  donated practical, sculptural, fanciful and downright crazy mugs to be sold at our fall fundraiser. The catch? All the mugs will be wrapped up in mystery boxes, so you get to guess which one might be inside from their clues and mugshots hung on the walls! Best part, after all the boxes have been sold we’ll open them up together and trade around for a chance to get your favourite!

a date with culture

Go on A Date with Culture and enjoy a variety of live events, demonstrations, food, and the best of local artists! An array of local artists share demonstrations of their craft with visitors, surrounded by music, food, and a great cultural atmosphere on the iconic Granville Island during Culture Days weekend celebration!
