North End Craft School Shows Exceptional Student and Alumni Work Through May 30

Boston’s acclaimed North Bennet Street School has returned to the Financial District with a three-week exhibition of unique and beautiful objects made by artisans trained at the school.

“Made by Hand: an exhibit of extraordinary craftsmanship” features dozens of one-of-a-kind objects created by North Bennet Street School students and alumni – including a classic Sheraton hall table, an exquisite diamond sapphire ring, several handsomely finished violins and intricately constructed hand-bound books.

The show is open to the public Mondays through Fridays now through May 30, 8:00am to 5:00pm, in the main lobby of Two International Place, the soaring office tower overlooking the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Admission is free.

On Tuesday May 13, over 400 supporters of the school attended an evening reception in the space to celebrate the work and meet the makers. Proceeds from the event will benefit the school’s scholarship fund.

One of the oldest schools for traditional crafts training in America, North Bennet Street School (www.nbss.edu) has taught career-oriented trade skills in the North End since 1881. The nonprofit school is known internationally for excellence in teaching and for its role in promoting and preserving traditional craftsmanship.
