We are pleased to announce that we will be running in-person Summer Workshops.

Registration Start June 29th at 10:00. 

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 Information & Registration


 July 3rd to August 31, 2021

Registration Opens June 29th, 2021. At 10:00am registration for all workshops.

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.

Online registration

We have been working with a new website with online registration! As we continue working with 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. 

  • Students Name, their contact info, and payment (made online at the time of registration). Payment must be taken at the time of registration to secure your spot in the class. Note: HST is NOT included in the listed course fees.
  • You will have 10 minutes at the online check out to complete registration.
  • You will only be able to register one person per class. You can sign up for as many classes as you would like.
  • We maintain a waiting list and encourage students to ask to be added to it. If we have enough students and if there is a day available in the schedule with an instructor available to teach, we will run a second class.
  • Students must be 16 years of age or older (unless individual course outline specifies under 16 appropriate).
  • Over the recent years we have worked at making our studios accessible but are still aware of some limitations. Some of the workshops we offer can be physically demanding. If you have any accessibility concerns, please do not hesitate to call the Centre to discuss these concerns prior to registering.

Open Studio Saturdays

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 in the Fall of 2021.

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.
