All craft disciplines (Glass, Textiles, Furniture, Ceramics and Industrial Design) held their second collaborative studio project back in January.

This year the project was called “Food for Thought.” All five studios also participated in the huge charrette, which ran from January 12th to the 16th, and were tasked with developing a prototype around the theme of food.
The Sheridan Gallery featured its latest exhibition last Friday. Il Dolce Dieci will be presented from October 31st until November 14th.

We invite you to savour the samplings of the ‘sweet’ ten. Clemente Botelho, coordinator of the Bachelor of Illustration program, has organized the exhibit.
