Come out for an evening to celebrate craft, and support Craft Ontario's programming!

Enjoy an evening of fantastic company, delicious hors d'oeuvres, a family-style 4-course dinner and drinks, as well as the opportunity to celebrate the 2022 recipient of the John & Barbara Mather Award for Lifetime Achievement. The evening will start with a silent auction of contemporary craft objects, and wrap up with a handmade object for the dining table as a special thank you from Craft Ontario.

CRAFT DINNER is an opportunity for business leaders, philanthropists, patrons and the community to collectively share their commitment to support makers, advocates and volunteers who have made a difference in the fine craft sector.

Don't miss an evening in support of the work that Craft Ontario does to help members keep making.

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:

  • Being the leading advocating voice for craft makers in Ontario
  • Maximizing craft makers’ potential as artists and entrepreneurs
  • Providing a forum for critical debate
  • Enhancing the public’s enjoyment of craft through education and access

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.
