The Center for Craft is teaming up with the Penland Gallery at Penland School of Crafts to bring twenty-four artists to Asheville for a two-day holiday pop-up shop, December 7th and 8th.
The shop will present work in clay, textiles, metal, glass, print, wood, and jewelry by WNC artists affiliated with Penland School. Join us to meet the artists and enjoy fine contemporary craft and well-designed objects.

In order to increase the value and relevance of craft to society, the Center works to advance the understanding of craft in higher education, museums and cultural institutions, and across disciplines. Field building strategies include convening thought leaders, creating, documenting and disseminating research, and launching innovative leadership initiatives. We provide grants and fellowships to emerging and established craft artists, curators, and scholars in order to build a future for the field of craft.
Recognizing that Asheville and the surrounding area has been a bastion for craft in the United States dating back to the Cherokee, the Center is actively working to preserve and advance the craft legacy of Western North Carolina through the development of our property in downtown Asheville, North Carolina and through a series of exhibitions and community-focused initiatives.
