Showcase of Local Arts and Crafts

Summer Showcase of Island Arts and Crafts

During the summer season, we plan to set up a display in the Rec Centre featuring island arts and crafts to showcase local talent. From quilting, knitting, hooked rugs, painting, sculpture, jewelry making, photography, wood carving and anything in between, we would love to display a piece of your work.
If you have items to sell, we would provide the person interested with details of where these items can be purchased.
If you would like to display something you have made, please contact Hetty.

Renovated Rec Centre

We were delighted that a large number of community members came out to see the newly renovated Rec Centre today. Fresh paint, new lighting and new furniture have all contributed to making the hall look bigger and brighter.

Big Changes

Rec Centre Rejuvenation

Spring is around the corner and the Rec Centre is undergoing a major and long-overdue spring rejuvenation. The carpet pieces on the wall have been removed, the non-functioning blinds have been taken down, old unnecessary wires have been removed (some re-routed to be out of sight), the entire interior of the hall will be painted and a new metal roof will soon be installed. Thank you to the community members who have been working hard to make this happen.

“Hooked on Tancook” A Revival of Rug Hooking

The official finale of our “Hooked on Tancook” project is an exhibition at the Tancook Rec Centre that opens on Tuesday.
We are so pleased with the revived interest in rug hooking, especially when Tancook has always been well known for this art form. We are grateful to the local rug hooking experts who gave generously of their time and shared their talents with the Tancook’s next generation of rug hookers.

Born of Necessity, Rug Hooking Is An Important Link To The Past, One That Tancook Island Is Trying To Revive


“Hooked on Tancook” Exhibition

We invite you to visit the Rec Centre between July 14 and August 8 to view some of the rug hooking projects created by the local participants in our “Hooked on Tancook” initiative.

This project was funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage’s Support4Culture.
