Val Chan


I am both artist and crafter.  I work across multiple mediums and am happiest when I have brush, pencil, hook or needle in hand.  I am so pleased with this opportunity to share what I’ve created with you.

Please wander about this website to see my latest endeavors.

Thank you for visiting.

Where you can find me:

I’ve set up the coziest studio ever at the very cool C3 Lab.  I’ve brought in my favorite paintings and my crafting “greatest hits.”  This is my hygge home-away-from-home-studio.  It’s the perfect place to work on quiet crafts, drawings and art journals – all the while drinking copious amounts of tea and coffee (hygge – remember?).  I also use this space to host small groups of artists & crafters.    Please contact me at if you are interested in joining my fiber-crafting-circle (knitting, crochet, embroidery, hand stitching, needlepoint) or art journal group.

CLTextiles has put together its first (hopefully of many) fiber art exhibit.  I’m really excited to see the range of work that will be on display.  I will have one small but rather time-consuming fiber sculpture in this show.  My sculpture, “Out on a Limb,” is significant to me because it’s my first crossover of using classic crafting skills to create a piece of textile art.
Location:  C3 Lab

Hope to see you!
