CRAFT ONTARIO: WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
Craft Ontario was founded in 1976 through the merger of the Canadian Guild of Crafts (Ontario, 1931) and the Ontario Craft Foundation (1966), and is registered with Revenue Canada as a charitable organization under the corporate name Ontario Crafts Council (charitable tax number: 11887 8511 RR 0001). Our vision is for a world where craft is acknowledged as a source of enrichment in life and valued for its artistic, cultural and economic merit.
We champion, promote and support craft by:
Craft Ontario’s annual programs include exhibitions of professional work that range from handmade ceramic tableware to one-of-a-kind furniture pieces; workshops and professional development services for our members as creative-entrepreneurs; conferences that reach a national audience; a retail Shop where we support sales of member work; and Studio: Craft & Design in Canada, a magazine published twice a year with readers throughout the country.
Overall, Craft Ontario works to provide opportunities for craftspeople that range from addressing business needs to providing promotional space in the arts and culture community. These services are crucial to craft artists across the province, and Craft Ontario is committed to maintaining and developing this unique role.
