The year-round, multipurpose facility is intended to promote Prince Edward Island’s fine craft to markets, help businesses grow and the industry expand.

The PEI Centre for Craft hopes to raise public awareness of fine craft, increase educational opportunities, access to export markets, and employment opportunities for the Island’s craft industry. 

The centre will offer a series of short courses and workshops that will increase skills for professional craftspeople in business management and growth. There will be technical and advanced training available in disciplines such as pottery, silversmith, glass, and textiles.

A key item from the government’s Culture Action Plan was to invest in a craft development centre partnership with the PEI Crafts Council. The action plan will see over $1.45 million invested to support culture in the 2018-2019 provincial budget.
