Crafteria is a combination of the English word “Craft” and Spanish –“ tería”, which means a place/hub where something is done.

In this Crafteria project series, we offer unique arts and handmade crafts workshops for youth, from craft coffee, candle making, Pastel Nagomi Art, leather work to bread making. Crafteria is a place where both beginners and professional craftsmen can make beautiful things, giving our minds a chance to rest and rejuvenate through sharing and the creative process.


  • To build a craft hub to appreciate, respect and explore different forms of handmade craft.

Who is the instructor?

Teresa Chan

Teresa learned to make the first bread around 10 years ago at George Brown College. Then she spent a few years exploring different types of baking. At the end, she discovered the magic of bread: seeing how the simple ingredients – water, flour, yeast and salt – mix together giving rise to something unique is like seeing a small miracle being born every time.
