With funding and support from Innovation PEI, The PEI Crafts Council has moved into a new home at 98 Water Street in Charlottetown. This fantastic new location has allowed us to expand our services to our members, and increase our promotion of fine craft and professional craft development in the province of PEI.
The PEI Centre for Craft is the central point for all things craft related on Prince Edward Island; Guidance for new craftspeople, more advanced training for experienced craftspeople, and a beautiful showcase and retail gallery for our top Island craft pieces.
The upper level of the building is home to our working office space, as well as an open space for workshops and meetings. Educational workshops and courses are designed to develop the industry of craft on Prince Edward Island. Courses are open to all who are interested in developing their craft business. A membership is not required to attend the courses. Workshops include an updated Business of Craft Course, Professional Development for Craftspeople, Product Photography for Craft, Branding and Social Media for Craft, and more. Craft education courses include intermediate and advanced sessions in techniques for pottery, metals, glass, wood and textile mediums, with both local and regional instructors leading the classes.
The main street level of the PEI Centre for Craft features a retail gallery. The gallery is a showcase of the finest examples of craft that Island artists have to offer, allowing visitors to see a wide range of local culture expressed through various mediums of craft.
Juried members of the PEI Crafts Council are invited to sell their work on consignment from the Centre for Craft.
