Toronto Sheridan’s Craft and Design program is at the forefront of Canadian craft instruction. During three years of intensive studies, the ceramics, glass, furniture, and textiles students study in world-class studios from faculty that are critically acclaimed in Canada and internationally. The emphasis of the program is not only on developing superb design and technical skills, but also on learning to reflect on the role of makers in a contemporary context. The graduating exhibition Creo is the culmination of three years of exploration of concepts and techniques leading to the production of objects that can both challenge and inspire. The inquisitive and imaginative minds of the students created functional, decorative, sculptural and conceptual pieces that attest to their thorough understanding of materials and showcase their abilities as innovators highlighting their potential as future leaders in the craft field. Creo means “to create” or “make grow”. Mentorship, peer support and shared studio practice have provided an unparalleled opportunity for growth and creativity. These emerging craftspeople and designers have learned that an artist’s journey is never predictable, that surprises can inspire, collaboration can exhilarate. Sheridan graduates in ceramics, glass, furniture and textiles would like to take this opportunity to share their best with you.
Please join us for The opening reception on Thursday May 1st, 7-10 pm
On Thursday March 6th visiting artist Kathy Hattori gave a public talk and an all day workshop on natural dyes to students from the Craft & Design Textiles program. We had so much fun exploring this Eco-friendly way of dyeing fibers & learned of the great possibilities of this medium.
