The Crafts Center offers extracurricular, non-credit classes to NC State students and the community.
Classes and Workshops
You must be 18 or older, or a currently enrolled NC State student, and have health insurance to take classes at the Crafts Center.
Classes are available in varying session lengths as an ongoing study in a specific studio. For classes that are 15 hours and over, students will have access to the studio in which they are enrolled for the duration of the semester. For classes less than 15 hours, students have the option to sign up for other classes and/or purchase a membership.
Workshops are focused sessions that are held for several consecutive days. Workshops do not include additional studio access; however, students will have access to the studio during the time in which the workshop is being conducted.
Each class is designed specifically for a designated level of experience. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP FOR AN INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED COURSE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE REQUIRED EXPERIENCE.Please refer to this key, which designates each class level:

Most of our classes fill quickly so there is often a wait list. Late notice cancellations require considerable processing and labor to try and fill the reserved seat. Therefore, cancellations under 10 days are not able to be refunded unless we can fill the space.
• If cancellation occurs 10 or more days prior to the start of a class, a 75% refund of payment will be issued; 25% of payment is assessed for processing charge.
• If cancellation occurs less than 10 days prior to the start of a class, a refund cannot be issued unless the space can be filled. If the space is able to be filled, a 50% refund of payment will be issued.
