What is your favorite memory from your time at the Crafts Center?
My favorite memories are from taking classes and crafternoons that were taught by Jo Ellen, Paul, Jen, Katy, John, and Carol. Teaching my own class was a wonderful experience. And finally taking courses with my lovely friends was an absolute gift.
What skills or lessons did you learn at the Crafts Center that you plan on using in your future?
From working at the crafts center and taking classes I learned a variety of new skills which I will carry with me in both my personal life and professional practice. Technical skills in screen printing, stained + fused glass, handbuilding and pottery wheel, along with various photography, woodworking and mixed media classes have bolstered my creativity, and given me a relaxing outlet. From behind the front desk I have gained time management, organizational, and financial skills.
What is a word/tool you were unfamiliar with when you started that you’ll never forget? Our motto is “Make it Here” and at the Crafts Center I have made a positive college experience that I will carry with me throughout my life.
What are your plans after graduation?
After graduating I plan on continuing my studies here at NC State where I will focus on getting my masters in Landscape Architecture. I hope to be able to work in community development, playspace design, and coastal resiliency.
