In their third year, Sheridan Craft and Design Furniture students participate in a capstone community project that is organized and facilitated by Codesign. This year, students designed and fabricated furniture for a “Community Living Room” within the Small Arms Building, a heritage building re-imagined as a creative hub for the intersection of the arts, culture and heritage, environmental sciences and technology. Three indigenous students also worked alongside the furniture students for the entire project as part of the Small Arms Society’s efforts to include Indigenous voices in the development of this new community space.
Sheridan’s Craft and Design program celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year! Throughout 2017, the faculty is organizing a series of events which will highlight both the program’s proud history and the exciting future of the recently launched 4 year Honours Bachelor degree. For the first time, this year the program will be participating in the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto from Friday, July 14 to Sunday, July 16.
