Oh! Canada


This year marks the sesquicentennial of Canadian Confederation. On 1 July 1867 the existing United Province of Canada was divided to become the new provinces of Ontario and Quebec, and two other colonies, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, also became provinces of the new Dominion of Canada. To mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council, now known as Craft Nova Scotia, challenged our members to create works exploring their Canadian identity and/or celebrating Canadiana.
