CO Space


The engaging forms and shapes illustrate hidden memories, as connections emerge between past and present.


CO Space

CO Space is a multi-purpose venue dedicated to providing a space for Craft Ontario members and the public to learn, create, discover, and build community.

Craft Ontario Members can apply to use this open-concept space to host exhibitions, installations, workshops, presentations and meetings. 

Members are eligible to book CO Space for free if the booking event does not generate revenue. If the event is intended to create a profit, such as a trunk show or workshop, a rental fee will be negotiated on a one-on-one basis that takes the event type into consideration.

Individuals or Organizations who are not members of Craft Ontario are also welcome to apply, but will be charged a rental fee for use of the space.
