The Manitoba Craft Council is for people who love contemporary craft: artists and artisans, collectors and connoisseurs, DIYers and armchair enthusiasts. It's for people who value the originality and quality of the handmade, who find meaning in making. It's for the dreamers and schemers who seek to re-interpret the material and cultural traditions of the past through a contemporary lens. It's for people who have to forge, carve, weave, print, glue, sculpt, and knit. And for their friends and supporters. It's for you.
