Handmade in Manitoba

As per Manitoba Public Health Guidelines, due to Covid-19, the C2 Centre for Craft will be closed to the public effective November 2. This exhibit will open when the facility reopens.

Crafted in Manitoba commemorates the 150th anniversary Manitoba’s formation by highlighting its diverse history of craft. This selection of historical craft, from museums around the province, represents some of the many cultures, natural environments, and communities in Manitoba. They illustrate how hand craft has shaped our history and, in turn, has been shaped by our beautiful province. Whether made for the delight of a child, the family business, a community celebration, practical necessity, or simply the activity of craft itself, each of these hand-crafted artifacts tells a part of Manitoba’s story.

The exhibit features objects from museums across the province providing a province wide presentation.

The opening reception will follow all Covid-19 rules, with a maximum of 10 people allowed on-site at a time, which is 20% of our facility capacity.  The reception may be canceled if Covid-19 rules change before November 6, 2020.
