A thriving national craft field is built on a deep understanding of the history of craft, lively critical discourse, thoughtful making, and a strong next generation. For 25 years, the Center for Craft has supported the community of makers and craft scholars and is considered one of the most influential national 501(c)(3) organizations working in the craft field today.
