CO Space

Shay Salehi

I have been interested in the fragility of glass and its ability to mimic other materials. I fuse glass beads into pure and simple forms which play with negative space and texture.


CO Space
Workshops + Talks Community Events Venue Rental


In 2017, Craft Ontario launched "CO Space", a multi-purpose venue dedicated to providing a space for our members and the public to learn, create, discover, and build community. We believe that a place to gather and learn is an important and valuable part of our offering. 

Please note that as part of our 2018 financial restructuring, we are undergoing major changes in our 1106 Queen St. West location. As a result, we regret that we are unable to continue CO Space programming at this time. However, we plan to be able to post 2018 summer and fall availability, as well as 2019 availability, by April, 2018, and look forward to seeing your applications come through!

Workshops + Talks

Our workshop program offers members vital professional development opportunities that seek to help you grow your entrepreneurial endeavours and succeed in the craft industry, locally, nationally, and abroad.

Coming soon: Check back for our list of 2018 creative and professional development programs!

Community Events

In 2017, CO Space was available for members to book for their own events and exhibitions. The space was used for exhibiting work, arranging a pop-up store or trunk show, launching a new project, or simply need a space for a meeting.

Venue Rental

As Craft Ontario is undergoing many physical changes to our 1106 Queen St. location, we are unable to offer Venue Rental at this time. We hope to offer this service again in the near future.

Who We Are

Formerly the Ontario Crafts Council, Craft Ontario is a not-for-profit service organization that works to have craft recognized as a valuable part of life. We promote and celebrate professional craft through providing member opportunities, and advocate for craft practice by educating and empowering diverse audiences.
