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

Membership with the Alberta Craft Council is open to all those working in the craft sector and to anyone interested in supporting the development of Alberta Craft.
