Annual Celebration of Craft

The Annual Celebration of Craft promotes the appreciation of fine craftsmanship and supports the School’s mission to train students for careers in traditional trades. Over the course of two months, NBSS will display exquisite work from our extended community.

As part of the Annual Celebration of Craft, our Student & Alumni Exhibit features hand-carved chairs and cabinetry, jewelry in silver and gold, leather-bound books, handmade violins, and more. Over 60 artisans hailing from regions around the globe will be represented in the show.
