You might not know it, but the Triangle area offers a wealth of opportunities to learn new crafts. From spinning yarn to setting gemstones, there is somewhere local to learn it.
Each month for the next year or so we’ll explore the local craft scene, offering up where you and yours can learn new skills and hone old ones.
Tucked away in the basement of Thompson Hall, off a small side street on the N.C. State University campus, is a 51-year-old institution: the Crafts Center. Despite being on the N.C. State campus, the Crafts Center’s many classes and workshops are available to both students and the public, although students are offered reduced prices.
