About Us

Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design (the Centre), a non-profit charitable organization, is an integral and leading force in the educational, promotional and economic development of the craft sector on the Island with a membership of over 250 individuals and organizations throughout Cape Breton Island.

We serve the craft community of Cape Breton Island from beginners and recreational practitioners to highly accomplished professionals, offering instruction as well as resource and support services.

The Centre offers a variety of educational opportunities in both contemporary and traditional craft, promotes and markets Cape Breton craft through exhibitions, special events, and a variety of traditional and social media platforms, and operates a permanent, year-round store-front Gallery and Gallery Shop representing over 80 Cape Breton artists.

Creativity & Craft Camps

These camps will be based on creativity and how important it is to express yourself and let your own true colour shine through. They will also include lessons on the importance of the arts, learning, positive attitudes and the environment. The main goal of the camps is to have fun and be creative!

For more information regarding the Creativity & Craft Camps, please call Amy at 902 539 7491 ext 116. Space is limited, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
