We are pleased to announce that the Centre for Craft Nova Scotia Studios will be running our spring session of in-person classes and open studios. Our classes have been successful because of the cooperation and ongoing communication with all the studio users and we thank you for that. It is our hope that all students and staff continue to feel safe in our studios and for that we ask for your ongoing efforts in helping us enforce the policies we have in place.
If you have any questions regarding the studios, please contact the Studio Coordinator at 902-492-2524.
As a not for profit organization with a small team we are extremely grateful that we are able to make this shift online to make signing up easier for everyone. We hope you can all help us keep growing by being patient when issues do arise.
Thank you so much for your support!
Classes Run April 17th to June 23rd , 2021
Registration Opens April 6th, 2021. Please see below for times.
At 10:00am registration for class in the wood, jewellery, weaving, and multipurpose studios will open.
At 11:00am registration for class in the ceramics studio will open.
We are splitting up registration times to help ease a major spike in traffic to our site.
The Centre for Craft intends to adhere strictly to the safe health guidelines and directives of the Nova Scotia Public Health Authority. All students and instructor must wear masks at all times. Please see Health Protocols.
We have been working on a new website with online registration! This has been in the plans for years and it is finally here. As we roll out this new system please bear with us as we figure it all out.
We understand that it is a stressful time trying to register for the class you want. The first day of registration is very busy as we fill spaces on a first-come-first-serve basis and have limited space.
Please check your junk/spam folders for confirmation emails.
Our Ceramics & Jewellery studios are available for rent, to users with experience. There is a technician available for questions, but you must be capable of working independently. Students enrolled in a class get ONE free Open Studio (3.5hrs). This must be completed within the term they were enrolled in class.
Open Studio will begin on February 20th.
The costs of Open Studio will be $30 for non-students and $25 for students currently enrolled in a class. Taxes are included in this price.
Open Studio Saturdays are starting, plus we are adding Wednesdays for ceramics only! Morning (9:30-1:00) and afternoon (1:30-5:00) time slots available for a max of 6 people. This term we are trying something new again. Covid has changed the way we manage Open Studio, we know we do not have it worked out to go as smoothly as it used to. Please work with us as we navigate issues as they present themselves.
You may book your time slots for the term but we ask you be considerate and understand we have a lot of people who come to open studio and only so much space. Only book what you know you can do. For each booking a new for will needed to be filled out.
