Barbadian culture and heritage on show


Barbadian culture and heritage took the spotlight at the Crop Over Craft Works at the Barbados Museum and Historical Society on Saturday.

The exhibition, which is in its fifth year, showcased an array of local cuisine, basketry, metal works, textiles, jewelry and visual arts.

Patrons were also introduced to traditional Barbadian games from yesteryear and visitors received guided tours of the heritage site.

More than 40 exhibitors were in attendance.

Acting marketing officer of the Barbados Museum and Historical Society, Leshay Drayton told Barbados TODAY that, since its inception, the Crop Over calendar event has continuously gained support from locals and visitors alike.

The outstanding wood works from the students of the Derrick Smith School were also on display.

The school has received fame for its wood works programme, with products being exported to Europe and North America.
