.I am drawn to local historical documents, architecture and artifacts as a place to initiate visual exploration. Through my work I attempt to question and destabilize my own understanding of personal and collective identity.
If you believe, as we do, in the importance of craft and the value of a strong craft community please consider making a gift today. We rely on the generosity of individual donors for 20 per cent of our annual revenue. A donation to Craft Ontario, whether large or small, will have an immediate impact on Ontario’s craft community.
These days everyone is on board with recycling. Here's a chance to re-purpose and spring clean the nooks and crannies of your jewellery box, cabinets and drawers...plus, your donation will enter you into a draw to win a beautiful piece of handmade jewellery from the Craft Ontario Shop valued at $200!
Sterling silver is made up of mostly silver ore, which is one of the most ancient recyclable materials on the planet. Send us your broken chains, unmatched earrings or cuff links, worn out rings, or any scraps that you don't need! You get the idea - any unwanted sterling silver jewellery or small items that can be recycled and put to good use again.
Look for STERLING or 925 stamped on pieces you might consider donating. If in doubt, use a magnet to test for non-precious, but silver coloured metal. Here are a few other handy tips for determining whether an object is made from sterling silver: www.wikihow.com/Know-if-Something-Is-Sterling-Silver.
Of course, we’re also more than happy to accept old and broken gold items too, in which case look for these kind of numbers and markings: 10k, 14k, 18k, 750, or 585.
Anyone donating official marked bars or bullion may be eligible for a tax receipt - please discuss this option with us in advance at the email address below.
Your donation will support the important transitional work of adapting and maintaining CRAFT ONTARIO as a community organization representing and supporting the best of craft in Ontario.

Toronto ON, M6J 1H9
