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.
  • To discover a craft idea that cheers up people.
  • To learn about the making of bread and different bread type.

Who is the instructor?

Teresa Chan

Teresa made the first bread 10 years ago at George Brown College. Inspired by her mom, she takes baking as her hobby, and keeps exploring different types of baking products through a lot of trial and error. 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.

In the upcoming Bread Lab, she will share her homemade tips on bread making, and guide us step-by-step to make our own bread. We will also taste bread made with different ingredients, and baking techniques. She believes everyone has a unique taste bud that keens on specific types of bread. Join the Bread Lab to have fun, and at the same time, to connect with like-minded people through different bread experiments.
