I laced up my skates in a chic and shiny warming hut cloaked in reflective mirrors before gliding onto the frozen Red River winding alongside downtown Winnipeg, Canada. It was minus-1 Fahrenheit, but the ice was crowded with happy hockey players and families, and folks on skates commuting, pushing strollers and walking dogs.

On the fourth floor of a former grain store in the Winnipeg Exchange District, the hum of a potting wheel and the clacking of sewing machines are a background track to the creative thoughts of a growing coterie of artisans in Winnipeg. A leather craftsman burnishes the end of a fine-grain leather belt and a potter deftly moulds a piece of clay into a cup. A few shoppers wander around the airy converted warehouse in the Winnipeg Exchange District, browsing for handmade cups, bowls, hanging pots, bathroom ware, backpacks and belts.
