There has always been a strong connection between the Craft & Design Studio at Harbourfront Centre and the School of Craft and Design at Sheridan College.

It was in 1974 that an intrepid group of 16 third-year Sheridan students were hired, by then-Harbourfront Corporation to establish Sheridan Harbourfront ’74 just west of Harbourfront Centre’s current location, as a summer attraction to entice people to the waterfront. It was all part of the burgeoning vision for what is today Harbourfront Centre. The original four studios—textile, glass, ceramic and metal—were based on the departments at Sheridan College.

From its meagre beginnings in 1974, Craft & Design evolved into the world-class Artist-in-Residence Program it is today. Sheridan College graduates have been a continuous and important contribution to the legacy and reputation of Harbourfront Centre for the past forty-four years.

Thank you to Thea Haines and Robyn Wilcox for their assistance with this exhibition.
