About Stamp

From time immemorial, humans have practised trades to meet their needs and express their vision of beauty. On April 29, Canada Post will pay tribute to the people who carry on this time-honoured tradition by issuing a new set of eight low-value definitives. The stamps depict the skills of an artistic woodworker, a bookbinder, a decorative ironworker, a glassblower, a weaver, a quilter, a leather worker and an oyster grower.

The trades combine the practical with the esthetic, and sometimes share techniques or materials despite the different nature of the finished products. Binding and leatherwork use leather. All these trades require patience and perseverance. Some tradespeople have opened museums to highlight their skills and introduce the general public to the origins and current trends in their trade.

Each stamp will be sold in panes of 100. Every trade will appear on a stamp of different denomination.

Glassblowing will be present on a 3¢ stamp.
