The Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library (MCML) and the Manitoba Craft Council (MCC) are pleased to team up with supporters like you to bring a new space for craft to life.
After over 12 years in our current space at 183 Kennedy Street, MCML is moving to a much larger facility that will provide more physical space for exhibits, public programming, a library reading room, an expanded storage for our growing collection, and more!
And after 10 years without a home MCC will share this beautiful, permanent place from which to promote and support contemporary craft and its makers in Manitoba – a dream fulfilled!
Located in an historic building at the south end of the Exchange District, the 3,025 sq ft facility will include an exhibition gallery, shop, library, and museum and workshop space featuring the best of contemporary and historical craft this province has to offer.
MCML and MCC have launched their joint fundraising campaign to raise the monies needed for a complete renovation of the new space. Set to open in Summer 2016, your generous donation will build walls and floors, buy lighting and doors. More than that, your giving will support and promote MCML as we collect, preserve and present historic and contemporary craft in Manitoba.
If you love craft and the people who make it (and we know you do!) donate to the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library. If you prefer you can mail a cheque to 1B-183 Kennedy Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 1S6.
The Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library will be celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Confederation with an exhibit. MCML is so honoured that Quilt Manitoba has selected us for their 2017 Quilt Challenge Fundraiser.
It will be held in conjunction with our planned Canada 150 Exhibit that will feature craft (of all media) in red and white. Quilt Manitoba members will be making small quilts in this colour theme, all to be donated to MCML with the intent to be sold, and funds to support our organization
