Yes! All ages are welcome.

The Center for Craft has been monitoring the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our community and is receiving daily updates from North Carolina and Buncombe County Department of Health and Human Services. Our top priority is always the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, coworkers, and visitors.
In consideration of recent recommendations to minimize the spread of COVID-19 by limiting public gatherings and increasing social distancing, the Center has decided to RESCHEDULE the Opening Reception of The Computer Pays Its Debt. This date has yet to be determined.
As of now, the Center for Craft's galleries will remain free and open to the public every day from 10 am - 6 pm; however, we are limiting capacity to 25 individuals at a time. In addition, we have increased the sanitation of public spaces and will be installing hand sanitizing stations in high traffic areas. We expect staff and request visitors who are feeling ill, are considered high-risk, or have recently travelled to an affected area to stay home. Cowork at Center for Craft is operating as usual at this time. If you have questions about event rentals, please contact Erika Kofler, Operations Manager at
We are continuing to monitor the situation in order to evaluate the impact on our staff, volunteers, and visitors and determine how to respond. If you have questions or concerns please email or call 828-785-1357. We will respond as soon as possible and appreciate your flexibility and patience during this time.
