Crafted at the WAG

Crafted

Friday, October 28 to Saturday, October 29

1 venue • 2 days • 3 organizations • 4 floors • 5 workshops • 50+ artists

Creating and elevating the handmade is growing in Winnipeg. In partnership with Manitoba Craft Council and Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association, the WAG is embracing this exciting movement with the second-annual CRAFTED, a juried show and sale that features craft at the Gallery; highlights local artists in Manitoba and Nunavut; 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 artists through initiatives that promote their art form at the WAG, and artists’ combined sales exceeded $100,000! Five art-making workshops sold out in advance and participants marvelled at their newly-acquired skills. Watch for information about this year’s DIY workshops!

Tickets $5/day • Kids under 12 free • NEW! Includes admission to WAG galleries • Tickets available online or at the door
