EDUCATION/CULTURE--CRAFTS-"Innovations" and "Practising the
The Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design is hosting two craft
displays entitled "Innovations" and "Practising the Craft", from
Feb. 28 to April 10.

These two displays feature work from students of the Nova Scotia
College of Art and Design and recent graduates of the college who
are in the craft business.

The displays are part of the centre's ongoing production crafts
display program which allows the public to look at the work of
Nova Scotia producers without the pressure to buy. Information is
made available for people who wish to know where the products can
be purchased. The displays are a good sample of the range and
quality of crafts available in this province.

"Innovations" is a juried display of work by NSCAD students. This
opportunity offers the students a realistic exposure to some of
the important issues in designing for the craft market.
"Innovations" includes work in jewellery, textiles and ceramics.

"Practising the Craft" promotes a variety of works produced by
recent NSCAD graduates involved in the craft business. This
display includes work from Artrage Studios, Barbara Albert, Black
Scratch Earth, Bruce Babcock, Dawn Jaya, Jan Crick, Janet Doble,
Nine of Cups, Red Earth Ceramics, Tangerine Tileworks, Vivien
Lau, and Zorane Design, all located in Halifax.

The Centre for Craft and Design, located at 1683 Barrington St.,
Halifax, is dedicated to preserving and promoting the craft
industry of Nova Scotia. The centre is part of the cultural
affairs division of the Department of Education and Culture.
