Rug Hooking Maker Table at the C2 Centre for Craft | 3-7pm

Join us at the C2 Centre for Craft for our Culture Days Maker Table! Maureen Winnicki Lyons will be hosting a drop-in rug hooking activity from 3-7 pm, in connection with our current exhibition ‘I whisper a tiny ‘I’m sorry’’ by Anne Steves. Visitors are welcome to bring their rug hooking creation home with them once completed. This activity is open to all ages, while supplies last. Registration is not required, and is free for all participants

‘Do you whisper a tiny “I’m sorry’” Exhibition by Anne Steves | 12-7pm

Featuring tufted wool rugs, photographs, and her own written reflections, Steves transforms images of lifeless birds - her own and those gleaned from friends both near and online - into large, human-scale artworks. She invites us to reflect on the universal and intimate dilemmas of life, loss, and connection - avian and otherwise - through her work.⁠

Just a Needle and Thread: Embroidery from the MCML Collection | 12-7pm



C2 Centre for Craft

C2 Centre for Craft is a project of the Manitoba Craft Council (MCC) and the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library (MCML).

The C2 Centre for Craft is dedicated to presenting the best of contemporary and traditional craft in Manitoba. Located in an historic building in Winnipeg’s Exchange District, C2 features an exhibition gallery, shop, library, museum collection, and more. C2 is a shared initiative of the Manitoba Crafts Museum & Library and the Manitoba Craft Council.

About the Manitoba Craft Council:

The Manitoba Craft Council is for people who love contemporary craft: professional artists and artisans, collectors and connoisseurs, DIYers and armchair enthusiasts. It’s for people who value the originality and quality of the handmade, who find meaning in making. It’s for the dreamers and schemers who seek to reinterpret the material and cultural traditions of the past through a contemporary lens. It’s for people who have to forge, carve, weave, fold, sculpt, knit. And for their friends and supporters. It’s for you. See, smell, touch, explore the myriad expressions of contemporary craft in Manitoba and be part of a community that is shaped, motivated, and defined by its love of craft.

About The Manitoba Craft Museum and Library:

Dedicated to preserving the heritage, teaching the student, inspiring the artist, and promoting a way of life that values the handmade, the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library has its origins in the early years of the Crafts Guild of Manitoba. The Guild was formed in 1928 as a branch of the Canadian Handicrafts Guild, and in 1933 that group established both a Permanent Collection and Library. In 1997 the Crafts Guild of Manitoba closed its doors, but the two collections were kept together and are managed by the Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library, an independent organization.
