A group of crafters on the Bonavista Peninsula have been working together to develop and design more "Cultural Craft" products that are representative of our historic sites. We have developed as a group motifs that we unveiled at a workshop in Bonavista in February. We had a wonderful two days with Shawn O'Hagan leading us. An article in "The Packet" last week (March 5) talks about the project.
The Cultural Craft Group of Partners include:
v The Factory - Sir William Ford Coaker Heritage Foundation Inc. - Port Union
v John C. Crosbie Sealers Interpretation Centre - Home from the Sea Foundation Inc. - Elliston
v Trinity Crafts - Bonaventure English Harbour Development Association - Trinity
v Green Family Forge & Cooperage - Trinity Historical Society - Trinity
v Random Passage Site - Cape Random Trust Inc. - New Bonaventure
It's a wonderful project and the workshops that we have participated in shows the high level of work being produced by people of the area. I look forward to the next gathering. always so much fun.
