Creating and elevating the handmade is growing in Winnipeg. In partnership with the WAG and Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association, the Manitoba Craft Council is proud to present the second-annual CRAFTED, a juried show and sale that features craft at the Winnipeg Art Gallery; highlights local artists in Manitoba and Nunavut; and incorporates a philanthropic component that ensures the handmade becomes the hand given (see call to quilters/sewers below).
In 2015, more than 3,500 browsed, bought, mingled, and learned. Over $35,000 was raised to support craft artists through initiatives that promote their art form at the WAG, and artists’ combined sales exceeded $100,000! Five art-making workshops sold out in advance and participants marvelled at their newly-acquired skills. Watch for information about this year’s DIY workshops!
Tickets $5/day • Kids under 12 free • NEW! Includes admission to WAG galleries • Tickets available online or at the door

Lend your talents to comfort young patients in our community. Your beautiful quilt or pillow case will be displayed at the WAG, providing a glorious backdrop to CRAFTED. After the event, they will be donated to children and teens at CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. In the generous spirit of the quilting tradition, please consider making a quilt or pillow case for a young patient to treasure – the perfect mix of art and philanthropy.
