City of Craft is a collective of craft-engaged arts organizers who aim to build community in the Toronto craftscape, support independent artists and craftspeople, and encourage the larger community to get involved with crafty happenings in the city. We organize Toronto's largest independently-run, juried craft show each December featuring craft-based installations and workshops, attracting approximately 4,000 attendees. With our inspiring year-long installation series and magical three-day festival, we hope to strengthen the relationship between the studio craft and DIY/indie-craft community, as well as increase the city's access to - and appreciation for - contemporary craft.
Can someone write me an essay online while I appreciate modern craftsmanship? You sure can, with our expert academics on your side!
City of Craft is a juried fair featuring the cream of Toronto's craft crop. With over 50 artists, we are proud to announce that many of these craftspeople are making their City of Craft debut, and there will be tonnes of new work to discover.
The first 100 guests through the door on Saturday, December 7th get a free, handprinted, limited edition tote bag. Check out our Instagram Highlights for a sneak peek.
