This octogenarian not-for-profit with a mandate to promote and nurture Ontario’s craftsmen through mentoring and scholarships, has been hard hit by Etsy and its online ilk. After closing its Yorkville outpost (which had been visited by the likes of Christopher Plummer, Bill Clinton, Margaret Atwood, and others), Craft Ontario has consolidated its shop and gallery south on Queen. Even if crafty exhibitions like “Chromatic Geography: Natural Dyes in the 21st Century” don’t tickle your fancy, the gift shop is full of one-of-a-kind wonders.
