ABOUT US
OVERVIEW / MISSION
Craft Alliance is revealing the power of craft. Our mission is to empower you to experience the craft of our time by:

      • exhibiting artists’ work,
      • educating all levels of students,
      • offering free classes and family programs.

We view craft as a source of skill and inspiration integral to human expression.

Universal and inclusive in nature, craft empowers communities, enriches culture and fuels the economy. In an increasingly fast-paced world, craft takes its time. It brings together process and material, sparking thought, igniting dialogue, and provoking surprise and delight.

Through bold stewardship and collaboration, we uncover craft’s unique qualities, evolving role, and full potential for innovation.
