Find Your Inner Artist at the Crafts Center
Along the wall in the back of the NC State Crafts Center are about a dozen spinning wheels, the kind people once used to make thread before the industrial revolution turned socks and shirts into factory products. Cross the room and you'll find a cupboard full of knitting supplies and bags of wool, shorn from real - not synthetic - animals. Down the hall are frames for creating stained glass, and equipment for creating handmade jewelry.
In fact, the Crafts Center offers instruction, supplies and equipment
to help you master a wide range of creative skills, from fiber art and
glass blowing to lapidary and woodworking. The center offers classes
for NC State students and employees, as well as members of the
community. Registration for the spring semester starts Friday, Jan. 18,
with classes scheduled to begin Monday, Feb. 11. The center provides
discounted rates to university students and employees. read more
