Hands of fire is a sculpture group for blind and visually impaired individuals and has been an official chapter of the Canadian council of the blind since June 2016. The group prides itself not only on the level of creativity it boasts but on the thriving sense of community that emboldens the members with confidence in their artistic abilities as well as their social lives.

Hands of fire meets every Saturday from 11am-2pm at the Canadian national institute for the blind and is entirely volunteer run. Since hands of fires’ inception in 2013, its mission statement and guiding philosophy has been to provide accessible means to blind and visually impaired individuals to express their creativity in a safe and welcoming environment.
