DOWN TO EARTH: Homemade Soups in Handmade Vessels


This year’s CRAFTED: Show + Sale not only showcases artists from Manitoba and the North, but also features a philanthropic cookbook supporting a worthy cause. Down to Earth: Homemade Soups in Handmade Vessels is a cookbook pairing 20 ceramic artists with 20 chefs. Proceeds from cookbook sales will be donated to Winnipeg Harvest.

Winnipeg Harvest is a not-for-profit, community-based organization. They collect and share surplus food with people who are hungry and offer training opportunities to help people step up and out of poverty.

The Manitoba Craft Council and the Winnipeg Art Gallery  are proud to support Winnipeg Harvest as this year’s heart of craft. Down to Earth: Homemade Soups in Handmade Vessels is available at the C2 Centre for Craft Shop, online, and at many more locations across the city (see full list of retailers below).

A Big Thank You to aDesigned Magazine, who created this special issue for CRAFTED in support of Winnipeg Harvest. An Extra Special Thank You to Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director Yoko Chapman, CRAFTED 2018’s Chair, for your tireless dedication to this cookbook and CRAFTED.


Finally, thank you to all of the participating chefs and artists who donated their time and expertise in support of this amazing cause. Thank you for bringing this vision to life!
