Artisan Crafts Group


This group meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 7:00 pm in the Studio at the Centre. 


We have 8 or so members in this group although over the last year some people have dropped out and several new members have joined.  We try to work on a new craft every month, but sometimes we need more than one meeting to finish the items we make.  Last year we made:

  • greeting cards using shaving cream as a medium,
  • kumihimo bracelets and necklaces,
  • basket weaving,
  • pin weaving, 
  • Christmas decorations made from beach driftwood.       

We also went on an excursion to the Coast Collective in Langford to see the arts and crafts on display and for sale. We had our first meeting of this year in January and decided to do shaving cream greeting cards again, as some members are new to the group and wanted to try it. 


The turnout for the meeting in January was small as some people do not like driving in the dark nights of winter.  The ones who are attending really enjoy it.  I would like to see the attendance get to 10 so that when people are away we have enough to make a meeting worthwhile.




This group is on hiatus until further notice.
