Community Events

Join us

The New Brunswick College of Craft & Design has exhibitions near and far, celebrating students, alumni, and visiting artists from near and far. Each of our internal College spaces is a dynamic expression of art, craft, and design. Our community partners in Fredericton and Saint John are an extension of the College experience.

Open to the public, our College gallery showcases the work of students, faculty and invited artists in a schedule of regularly changing exhibitions. It is an exciting learning resource that features a wide range of makers, materials and processes.

Learn with usHoneybee Folk School

Learn something new at the Honeybee Folk School, where makers of all levels gather to learn and celebrate traditional skills, fine craft, and sustainable living.

At Honeybee, we host seasonal gatherings, where instructors and participants flock together from across Canada to our state-of-the-art studios located in scenic downtown Fredericton, nestled along the shores of Canada’s most storied river, the Wolastoq.

Choose from half-day workshops to multi-day courses in subjects like knife-making, basketry, weaving on a loom, natural dyes, ceramics, urban gardening, Wolastoquey language lessons, wood carving, permaculture, and more.
