Schools with Craft Workshops and Courses

These schools offer workshops or courses in craft in a broad sample of mediums. Some of these schools may also offer degree or certificate programs in craft arts. Course catalogues are available through the schools’ websites. For further information on art/craft degrees and programs in your community, visit your public library. You can also browse searchable listings of all college and university programs through Peterson’s Education and Career Center.

State Arts and Crafts Councils
