Description

Heritage Craft At Risk Public Sessions

Monday, August 12th - 7pm
Anna Templeton Centre, Duckworth Street, St. John’s

Wednesday, August 14th - 7pm
SUF Hall, Winterton

Calling all people with heritage craft skills! Can you weave a basket, run a birch broom, or whittle a wooden carving? If so, we want to talk to you about heritage crafts in the province. Interested makers and craft practitioners are all welcomed.

Heritage NL and the Craft Council of NL are concerned about this loss of traditional know-how, and are working together to compile a list of makers, craft producers, and skills in decline.

The Heritage Craft at Risk survey is a joint project of the two organizations, which aims to assess the current viability of traditional heritage crafts in NL, and to identify those crafts which are most at risk of disappearing. The project also aims to create a list of heritage crafts in NL, accompanied by information about each craft and whom may practice it.

If you make (or used to make) something that you feel is traditional, or made in a traditional way, we would love to speak with you.

We will be holding public sessions on the following dates below. Come have your say about the future of endangered or under-practiced skills and crafts, or learn more about our craft-at-risk survey.

Sessions are free to attend, but we ask that you register so we can plan for numbers.

Monday, August 12th
7pm
Anna Templeton Centre, Duckworth Street, St. John’s

Wednesday, August 14th
7pm
SUF Hall, Winterton
