About Us

The Coop
Circle Craft is a unique BC Artist Cooperative dedicated to providing opportunities for craftspeople to connect with the community. Formed in 1972, Circle Craft has grown to become a major force in the marketing and promotion of quality craft utilizing a ‘direct from the artist’ approach. Built on a reputation for integrity and quality, both our annual Christmas Market and the shop and gallery on Granville Island are Vancouver traditions for locals and visitors alike and encompass a wide variety of media and design styles. Circle Craft is self-sustaining and is supported by commission on sales and participation fees.
Our 1994 mission statement reflects the aims of our founding members: “to promote the development, recognition and success of members and their work.” We are proud of our achievement in fulfilling our mission: Circle Craft is one of the most successful organizations of its kind in North America.
