Trudy Gallagher

International Support/Recruitment

Having lived all across Canada, Trudy understands the pressures of moving, new beginnings and new friends. Having taught in the jewellery/metal arts program, before diving into Marketing and Recruiting, Trudy is very passionate about NBCCD’s experiential learning and uniqueness in the Canadian Craft and Design scene.

Trudy was the owner/designer of Bejewel by Trudy Gallagher, which won numerous awards included Atlantic Canada’s Top 50 CEO’s, 7 Atlantic Canadian Awards of Excellence including Industry Supporter amongst many others. She is currently the co-owner and designer of Art Jewel Designs, and part of a new metalsmith cooperative here in Fredericton..  Although an experienced, trained jeweller, Trudy is currently having the time of her life exploring Textile arts and studying Fashion Design.  Her current influence is the colours, art and culture of Mexico where her family resides.

Fun fact:  if it has feathers, rhinestones or embroidery, Trudy will probably wear it.

Join Trudy Gallagher on a private walk-through the College or schedule a zoom call to discuss your creative future at NBCCD. Due to our small class sizes, we’re still able to offer the hands-on training we’re known for and are able to get you in front of the equipment you need to learn the science of craft & design.
