To celebrate the reopening of our resource library program, we are hosting a craft book sale on July 30 – August 1, 2022 from 10 am to 5 pm at our gallery on 1386 Cartwright St! Come visit and find books and magazines related to craft – materials, processes, techniques and more.
Part of the sales will go towards acquiring archival materials for the maintenance of our archive and resource library.
We are expanding our Craft Resource Library online with the addition of Crafted Vancouver’s library to make craft library resources more accessible.
Our library provides a wide variety of craft-related materials including Theory, Craft Skills, World Craft History and Craft Business among many others for the greater public and arts sector alike. The library will be officially open on July 29, 2022 both online and in-person.
Visits by appointment for library pick-ups and returns will be available from 10 am to 5 pm in house.
