New Brunswick College of Craft and Design (NBCCD) is the only College in Canada that
focuses entirely on fine crafts and design. In 1938, we started with programs for
fishermen and seasonal workers, to improve their off season skills, and have grown
into a destination arts college.
In 2010 NBCCD became an arts College independent of New Brunswick’s Community
College System, with our administration, educational pathways and our own future.
We have also been designated as a centre of excellence in the arts.
Our studio-based programs feature constantly evolving curriculum, full and part-time
learning options, award winning instructors with their own art practices, and fully
equipped studios with the latest technologies. Learning resources include a campus
store, library, the George Fry public gallery and state of the art computer labs.
Located in the heart of downtown Fredericton, a designated Cultural Capital of
Canada, the College surrounded by bookstores, boutiques, cafes and art galleries,
making it an idea living and learning environment for students in the arts.
