Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

No Funding
Sydney, Canada


Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design offers state-of-the-art studio space for new and emerging craftspeople to practice their creative skills. Our ceramic, metal/jewellery, stained glass, printmaking and textile studios offer a great space for artisans to work on their craft. The Centre’s Short-Term Artist-in-Residence program is open to applications year-round and offers residencies of flexible lengths from two weeks to six months, in the spring, summer, fall and winter. While living in the Sydney community, residents will have access to studio space at a subsidized rate where they can focus on developing their creative practice. At the same time, they’ll be given paid opportunities to teach classes and workshops, as well as host public lectures and special exhibitions for the members of the community.
