Crafts Center studios
From a black and white darkroom to a bike repair facility, the Crafts Center’s studios serve as both learning laboratories and “playgrounds,” engaging ever-curious minds. The Crafts Center houses eight studios: Mixed Media, Clay, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry/Metals, Lapidary, Photography, and Wood. View each studio page for more information

To use a studio when you’re not taking a class or a workshop, you can purchase a studio membership provided you have sufficient experience/knowledge to work independently in the studio. IFirst-time users must complete an orientation before purchasing a membership. Those deemed to have insufficient experience/knowledge to work independently in the studio may be required to take an introductory level class in order to obtain a studio pass.Membership to the Crafts Center entitles members full access to special events and their studio of choice during open hours and when a class is not in session. (The Center’s schedule runs on the official NC State University schedule.) Studio access may be limited or unavailable during class times. Studio memberships are valid for the current semester only unless an Annual Membership is purchased.
To schedule an orientation, contact the appropriate studio manager listed on our Staff page.
