Canada’s Only Museum of Craft – Our Story. Dedicated to preserving the heritage, teaching the student, inspiring the artist, and promoting a way of life that values the hand-made, 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.
