Alone Together Residency

In this time of crisis, the Alone Together residency is meant to be a chance to focus your creative energy and a source of comfort. There is no application process, no mandatory check-ins, and it doesn’t cost you a thing to participate. It is completely self-directed. That said, it can be difficult to motivate oneself in the best of times, let alone in the middle of a global pandemic. We want you to make this residency into whatever you need it to be right now.  Start a new project, perfect a technique, experiment, take some time to observe, read, or research.

We will help you connect with a creative community from near and far. Let’s work through this time of uncertainty alone, but together. Join our budding community here, and sign up for updates here.

This is a partnership between NBCCD and the NB Library of Craft & Design.

Visit Our Campus

The best way to find out if NBCCD is the place for you is to visit our campus for a guided tour. During your tour, you will have the opportunity to chat with instructors, meet current students, see student work and observe in-class demos. Tours are available Mondays and Tuesdays. Contact us at to schedule your tour today!


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. Schedule a virtual tour or chat to learn more.
