Land acknowledgement

Workshop was founded 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. We now also work from the unceded ancestral territory of the Syilx Okanagan Nation, where we are grateful to live and build relationship with the land.

As the descendants of settlers from Europe, we are committed to learning more about Indigenous histories and cultures 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.
