How to Join

RSVP to our Craft Club coordinator by email(craftclub@jss.ca)- please indicate which session you would like to attend. The coordinator will send the Zoom link by a day before the session day.

You will also receive information about the craftwork for what you registered to (in Japanese). That means you can start working on it even before the session day! During the session, you can sew/knit together with fellow Japanese-speaking craft lovers, share your work with them, and enjoy chatting (the topic can be anything, not limited to arts & crafts).

First Time Joining?

Anyone who loves or is interested in arts & crafts (and can communicate in Japanese) are welcome. If you want chat-only (no crafting or no sharing your work during the session), that is totally fine too!

Only for your first time attending, pre-registration via the Online Registration Form is required, for you to read and agree to our online program rules. We appreciate your understanding.
