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.
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.
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
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.
