Whether you’re just starting out, refining your ideas or already making a good living from your craft, Workshop will help your business grow, evolve and thrive.

Join now to get full access to our offerings and to support a small, independent magazine that’s focused on quality and creativity — just like you.

How it works

Workshop is a magazine and a community.

Sign up for free to receive our email updates and be the first to know about new events, resources and articles, such as success stories of other maker businesses, helpful tips from business professionals and guides on product development, packaging, marketing and more.

Or invest in a paid membership for an all-access pass to a whole selection of perks:

  • Join all our events and webinars for free (and watch recaps if you have to miss them);
  • Download our checklists, how-tos and guides;
  • Read all our articles, profiles and expert advice, including exclusive paid-members-only content;
  • Get first access to new Workshop offerings like mentorships, networking opportunities and discussion groups.

As we grow, we’ll add even more membership benefits: think courses, ebooks, print zines and more. (We welcome your ideas on what you’d like to see!)

While we do accept a limited amount of advertising, for the most part, we are reader supported and depend on memberships to pay for the production of our content. Join now and have your say in what we publish.

Land acknowledgement

The Workshop team is based in Tkaronto/Toronto, on land that was both home and meeting place for Indigenous peoples for many millennia before Europeans arrived, and that continues to play that role today for Indigenous peoples from all over Turtle Island. We acknowledge the original inhabitants of this land, including the Anishinaabeg, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat and the Mississaugas of the Credit.  

As the descendants of settlers from Europe, we are committed to learning more about the Indigenous histories and cultures of this land and to publishing stories that contribute toward reconciliation. In addition, we commit to donating 1 percent of our revenue to organizations that support Indigenous craftspeople and entrepreneurs. If you have any suggestions for relevant organizations or for other ways we can support Indigenous makers, please contact us and let us know.

Credits and thanks

Workshop Magazine is published by Kat Tancock and Corinna vanGerwen. Our dream is to unite our love of (and experience in) magazine journalism, small business life and, of course, arts and crafts into a community of like-minded individuals supporting each other in developing their maker businesses.

Workshop is published on Ghost, using the Shoji theme from Fueko.

Thank you to all the friends, family members and colleagues who have advised us in our venture, and to all the makers who have contributed thus far.

We would also like to thank the Government of Canada for its financial support.
