Crafts Center Coronavirus Status Update

The Crafts Center is cancelling all in-person classes through September 30. Leading up to this time, we will continue to review and evaluate best practices for the remainder of the semester. The Center will be moving as many classes online as possible and will be offering an entirely new array of online instruction. Please check our website often for frequent updates.
If you have work or materials that you’d like to pick up, please contact your studio manager to schedule a time. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the director, Carol Fountain Nix, at We are figuring out details as quickly as we can, and will get back with you ASAP with more information.
We will get through this! We will get through this! #WECANMAKEIT

The coronavirus pandemic has meant we are all facing some unprecedented changes to our daily lives. The Crafts Center has always been a community hub for our artists and patrons, teachers and students. Now is the time to pull together and collaborate, share ideas and resources, and support each other so we can continue to learn, grow and remain productive and creative.

We have put together a dynamic series of online classes and resources that we hope will inspire and connect you during this time…and beyond. These will include videos and live demos via social media. We will continue to develop ways in which we can all stay connected. Please see our current listings on our Craft Relief page and check back often as we’ll be adding new resources frequently.

As we continue to do what we can to stay healthy and safe during this challenging time, it is more important than ever for artists to come forth and inspire, relate, and challenge each other to reach new creative heights.


This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.
