Art & Craft Social – February 2023

Happy new year! For our first event of 2023 we will be gathering at nə́c̓aʔmat ct Library Branch in the Nellie Yip Quong meeting room, located in Strathcona. Tickets are available through eventbrite.

Art & Craft Social is a FREE community event bringing together a diverse group of artists, makers, designers, and craftspeople of all levels of experience to share and create in a social setting.

Bring a small creative project with you – drawing, painting, stitching, crocheting, collage, etc, – to work on at Art & Craft Social. The Social provides an opportunity to meet new people, get inspired, and learn something new through exposure to the creative work of each person’s project.

  • All are welcome. This is an inclusive space for women, women identifying, and LGBTQ2+ people to feel safe and welcome.
  • Face masks are encouraged, but optional. We will do our best to keep our space COVID-safe.
