After the success of our inaugural CRAFTED: Show + Sale in 2015, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Manitoba Craft Council, and Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association are thrilled to present the second-annual juried craft show at the WAG. All four floors of the Gallery will be bustling with craft activity from displays to sales opportunities to workshops.

CRAFTED 2016 will feature unique, handmade work by more than 50 craft artists from Manitoba and Nunavut, carefully selected by the jury. Last year over 3,500 browsed, bought, mingled, and learned with artists’ combined sales exceeding $100,000! We invite you to participate in this one-of-a-kind event!
