Artist in Residence

Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design offers state-of-the-art studio space for new and emerging craftspeople to practice their creative skills. Our clay, metal, glass and weaving studios offer a great space for artisans to work on their craft.

While living in the Sydney community, the artists have access to studio space for their art practice. At the same time, they’ll hold art classes and workshops and host public lectures and special exhibitions for the members of the community.

If you are interested in participating in the Centre’s Artist in Residence program or supporting Artist in Residence initiatives, please contact Lori at or 539-7491 ext 113.
