20th 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.
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 are typically represented in the show.
This is a particularly exciting year as it’s not only our 20th Celebration, but also our first with Sarah Turner as President. At these milestones, we are happy to report that the entire Celebration will again be held at North Bennet Street School's intimate Windgate Gallery in Boston’s North End from May 1 to June 29. The exhibit is free and open to the public, with tickets available for a special Opening Party on Thursday, May 9, 2019.
