Anna Templeton Centre for Craft, Art & Design
A craft & art school dedicated to presenting traditional skills in a contemporary context. Each season a wide range of adult evening classes & weekend workshops are scheduled to cover a wide range of creative topics including acrylic painting, crochet, drawing, embroidery, knitting, quilting, rug hooking, sewing, stained glass, water colour & more. Weekends during the school year are full of art classes for kids with an option for all ages groups from 3-17. In the summertime we hold week long day camps in art & craft, cartooning, drawing & painting, sewing, and textile arts.
Annually the Anna Templeton Centre presents a Christmas Tea & Sale (a craft fair on three floors with yummy eats & treats in a tea room); a Craft Supply Re-Sale; occasional lecture presentations exhibitions, and other special events to promote fine craft and to raise funds to support operating costs.
The building is also home to "Textiles: Craft & Apparel Design" a full-time, two-year College of the North Atlantic program.
