New Brunswick Crafts Council gear up for annual craft weekend in Fredericton.
The New Brunswick Crafts Council have announced plans for this year’s NB Fine Craft Fest. Continuing under the rebranded title #FromHumanHands adopted last summer, organizers of this year’s event will welcome nearly 40 exhibitors to the three day event planned for Officer’s Square, August 26-28 in downtown Fredericton. Along with the usual high standard, hand crafted works in wood, ceramics, jewelry, photography, fibre, leather and paint, #FromHumanHands 2016 will also include live music, food, a beer garden and the festival’s first series of public workshops.
“This year’s festival is going to be really dynamic,” said NB Crafts Council Executive Director Alison Murphy. “We’re offering public workshops for the first time as part of this event and we have new vendors, up and coming craft superstars that we’re really excited to present to the Fredericton public – craft they’ve never seen before as well as craftspeople who are staples in the sector.”
This year’s planned program of workshops includes plant-based fabric dyeing, felting, and jewelry making. Advanced registration is required for all workshops.
#FromHumanHands is a great opportunity to celebrate craft, meet the makers and this year, try your hand at creating something all your own.
