  2. By Hand/BC and Yukon – 51 pieces from Canada’s West Coast with a focus on the artists’ creative processes and studio environments; and
  3. Craft from the Republic of Korea – 47 pieces demonstrating the excellence of traditional and contemporary crafts.

The Art of Craft is presented by Museum of Vancouver in partnership with Craft Council of British Columbia, Canadian Craft Federation, Korean Craft Museum and the 2009 Cheongju International Craft Biennale.
