"JON & COMPANY"
A Bit of Background...
The JONANCO Hobby Workshop
was started by a group of rock-hounders who wanted a location to pursue their hobby in a dedicated space.
A large two story building was raised by volunteers who contributed labour, materials and expertise. The land, located at the corner of Nanaimo River Road and White Rapids Road, was donated by John Colwell, one of the original rock-hounders.
The workshop was named JONANCO from the words “John and Company".
Since 1974 JONANCO has grown into a hobby haven for crafters and hobbyists alike and has held true to its humble beginnings.
Membership dues are paid annually
Non-members are welcome to come out and take part in any of the activities with only a nominal drop in fee and try things out!
At Jonanco Hobby Workshop, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in offering the community a dedicated creative environment. Advocacy is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress and growth. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those with creative artistic talents. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their creative potential.
