Celebrating the skill, creativity, and beauty of Canadian craft, the CCF/FCMA has embarked on a journey to collect and share 150 images of Canadian fine craft in recognition of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Featuring a diverse assortment of disciplines, the #Craft150 collection is viewable online through our three social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There, you can find the work of emerging, mid career and master craft artists from across the country. The goal? To produce a large scale virtual gallery of fine craft from across the nation. We strongly believe in creating an accessible space for everyone to enjoy craft, regardless of geographic location.
Posts go live almost daily! With the help of our Provincial and Territorial Craft Council members, we are on a mission to share all 150 #Craft150 posts by the end of December. Thank you to all Canadian craft councils that have helped so far and to all those who will continue this mission in the coming months.
Join us in the journey! Search #Craft150 and check out the growing collection of Canadian contemporary fine craft, a reflection of Canadian culture through craft. Find your favourite piece and share it today!
