3. Bonjour/Welcome!

3.1. Adventure Along the Trans-Canada Highway


Course Inspired by Trans-Canadian Tour, Research and Collecting

In the tradition of trans-Canadian tours, either by rail or by car, this course explores applied arts across the regions of Canada from earliest times to the present.

A summer journey from West to East and return provided images, information and experiences that were added to this course.

During the trans-Canadian journey, over 200 individual designers, craftspeople and others concerned with Canadian design and craft were interviewed.

The road side restaurant sign depicted here welcomes visitors between Quebec and New Brunswick.

Academic and theoretical information will complement references to popular, folkloric Canadian vernacular.
