Craft in America is more than just a TV series, book, and this web portal. And our educational component goes beyond online lesson plans for Grades 1-12. The Craft in America Center on West 3rd Street is a great place to learn about the crafts. Here you’ll find extensive archives – over a thousand books and videos – for serious research or casual study. Plus scores of objects featured in the Craft in America documentaries.

If you’re an art enthusiast or school group wanting to learn more about craft, come visit us. And check out our schedule of lectures, workshops, and exhibitions below. Stop by, meet the artists, and see their work up close. Discover, firsthand, the thrill of the handmade.
