Cultural Craft Cooperative
With the efforts of the Lamont-Two Hills Business Development
Corporation and interested crafters in the region an outlet has been
established in which to sell their crafts, as a group from which to
share ideas. They have successfully been operating since April
of 1998. The Cultural Craft Cooperative is always looking for
talented crafters with quality products to join their ever growing
Crafters and Artisans Network
The Crafters and Artisans Network is a group of talented individuals who have shown interest in coming together as a cooperative to sell their arts and crafts to the general public. The Crafters and Artisans Network came together in September of 1999, as a result of the efforts of VALID (the Vegreville Association for Living in Dignity), the Lamont-Two Hills Business Development Corporation, and interested members of the community. Currently 13 members strong, CAN also features works from individuals involved in the Community Access Program through VALID, allowing them an outlet in which to display their talents as well. The Crafters and Artisans Network offers a variety of unique wares, including woodworking, painting, knitting, and other handiwork.
Membership in the group has brought many benefits to each member individually. The purpose behind the cooperative is not to compete with one another, but rather to compliment each other's products, as well as provide a wealth of experiences and knowledge in which everyone can share.
Because of their cooperative efforts and spirit, CAN has been quite successful. Nonetheless, they are always interested in adding new members to the cooperative. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Crafters and Artisans Network, please contact:
