Made of clay, glass, wood, metal, fiber and a myriad of new and alternative materials, craft objects, like the ones you will find on this site, represent both traditions and innovations in technology, social function and personal expression. Those who choose to participate in craft today are linked by skill, instinct and passion. We believe that handmade objects in our culture both unite and define us as Americans.
At craftinamerica.org, you can see episodes and shorts, learn techniques, visit object exhibitions and learn about artists. We invite you to discover and enjoy the excitement of the handmade and we thank you for your interest in Craft in America.
The Craft in America Center is a great place to learn about the crafts. Here you’ll find extensive archives – over a thousand books, videos and objects – for serious research or casual study. Check out our schedule of lectures, workshops, and exhibitions. Stop by, meet the artists, and see their work up close.
Discover firsthand the thrill of the handmade.
