Creating and elevating the handmade is growing in Winnipeg. In partnership with Manitoba Craft Council and Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is embracing this exciting movement with the second-annual CRAFTED. The one-of-a-kind juried show and sale highlights over 50 artists from Manitoba and Nunavut, features four DIY workshops, and incorporates a philanthropic component that ensures the handmade becomes the hand given.
In 2015, more than 3,500 browsed, bought, mingled, and learned. Over $35,000 was raised to support craft at the WAG, and artists' combined sales exceeded $100,000. Building on this amazing success, CRAFTED 2016 promises to be even bigger and better!
