Alberta Craft Council

The Alberta Craft Council is the Provincial Arts Service Organization that develops, promotes, and advocates for fine craft in Alberta.

The Alberta Craft Council has a dual role:

  • to support contemporary and heritage crafts as significant art forms that contribute to Alberta’s culture
  • to develop a craft sector of creative, skilled, viable, and sustainable craftspeople, studios, businesses, and networks

In operation since 1980, the Alberta Craft Council promotes craft in Alberta by:

  • operating two gallery and shop locations in Alberta, Edmonton & Calgary
  • operating the largest public gallery in the province dedicated to exhibiting craft arts
  • organizing 15-20 exhibitions each year
  • running two gallery shops that market work from 150+ established and emerging craft artists
  • educating and informing the public
  • creating publications, marketing ventures, and awareness products to members and the public
  • organizing the Advisory Committee that accepts Professional Members and decides what artists to feature in our Gallery Shop
