Since 1928 the Manitoba Branch of the Canadian Handicrafts Guild has been creating works of art that symbolize the multicultural heritage of Canada. The mandate of the Manitoba Craft Guild was to search out new work and to preserve the old. From the start, this Branch set high standards as the women that comprised it were determined to improve their society and to recognize the talents, traditions and artistic merit that people from all nations brought with them. At Hands On! you are invited to admire a sampling of these incredible contributions made by new and established Canadian artisans.
