Express yourself

The Crafts Center at NC State University, one of six programs comprising Arts NC State, functions as an art school specializing in crafts.

The Crafts Center’s mission is to provide hands-on, immersive, life-long learning skills to NC State students, faculty and staff, affiliates, alumni and the general public to support research, enhance critical thinking through creativity, and strengthen personal and professional development.

The Crafts Center is a place where creative skill and self-expression are fostered through the making and sharing of art and craft. With the intent of enhancing the quality of life, we reach out through academic collaboration, support for student life and through partnerships with other arts organizations. Our studios support the disciplines of woodworking, pottery, photography, fiber arts, lapidary, glass, jewelry, mixed media, and more.
