About Craft NB

Craft NB, formerly known as the New Brunswick Crafts Council, is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting excellence in crafts, maintaining standards of craftsmanship, connecting makers and buyers, and creating a knowledgeable and supportive community of craftspeople and craft enthusiasts. We further public education in the value of handmade goods created by local craftspeople who contribute to the cultural and economic sectors of this province. Regular Craft NB activities include sales and festivals, tradeshows, exhibitions and publications, awards, lectures, residency programs, jurying and standards and workshops. Craft NB seeks to be present in communities throughout the province and partners with various cultural and community organisations such as the Craft Alliance, the Canadian Craft Federation, the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, ArtsLink, Arts NB, the NB Craft Foundation Inc and the Province of New Brunswick’s Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture.

Their Story

Craft NB is the oldest provincial crafts council in the country. Its inception began in the 1950’s, and it has provided service to its members for over fifty years. In 1964, the Council was known as the Handicrafts Association and upon incorporation in 1980 officially became the New Brunswick Crafts Council Inc. In 2016 we changed our name to Craft NB / Métiers d’art NB. Currently located on Victoria Street in the Rabbit Town area of Fredericton, Craft NB continues to seek out new ways to support its members and promote the value of fine craft to local, national and global markets.
