Business Opportunities for Creative Entrepreneurs

By becoming a member of Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design, you join a community of knowledgeable and skilled practitioners. In 2022, the Centre turned 50 – a whole half-century! During the last 50 years, we have helped emerging artists grow their careers in a multitude of ways. 

Professional development in the craft industry is encouraged through participation in our retail shop, gallery, studios, workshops, e-newsletters, and studio residencies. Through these opportunities, we hope to support the development of creative careers and the growth of the sector overall.
