Membership

Does your organization feature, promote, and support the work of contemporary craft artists in Canada? Do you value the cultural and economic contributions craft makes as part of our national economy? Do you value the opportunity to network with craft organizations working towards similar goals? Join today!

Craft Council Members

Craft Council Members make up the bulk of our membership. This includes the recognized provincial or territorial organizations that represent specific regions of the craft community across Canada. Geographically, they form the main ties that shape our national network, but more importantly, they represent the craft community of their region on the national stage. Historically and currently, this collaboration of allies has worked together to form a strong, national voice for craft.

The CCF/FCMA works closely with our Affiliate Members, including organizations, institutions, and associations related to Canadian contemporary fine craft. Any organization with the goal of growing and advancing excellence in the field is welcome to apply, including educational institutions, guilds, museums, galleries, collectives, foundations, etc. These organizations have incredible perspectives and experience to share, expanding the CCF/FCMA’s capacity to represent the many aspects of the national craft field.

Honourary Members are a revered group of individuals appointed by the board to recognize their significant contributions to the field of contemporary Canadian craft. This category recognizes our history, as the CCF/FCMA retained the list of honourary members from our previous incarnation (The Canadian Crafts Council) and adds new names to the list each time we present our national award for craft volunteerism, the Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft.
