Artisans of Crawford Bay

Crawford Bay, home to a diverse group of Artisans, (craftspeople) is a small community on Kootenay Lake in southeast British Columbia.  Our unique, even quirky studios (look for log, strawbale and an ex-bootleggers building) are within easy walking distance from each other. Watch us work, ask questions and purchase directly. Located on the east shore of Kootenay Lake, we are 7 Km from the Kootenay Bay Free Ferry.
