Craftsmen at Work

Top of page

Nova Scotia craftsmen do traditional handicrafts - pottery, weaving, carving and metal-work - with many of the designs inspired by the Province's landscape and wildlife. Shapes for carving are suggested by the grain and colour of woods; bark yields a natural dye for homespun wool. In summer courses at a Craft Centre, we see how the skills of their ancestors are passed on to a new generation.
