Yadkin Valley Craft Guild Education


The Yadkin Valley Craft Guild is committed to occupational and community education in fine and heritage crafts.

The Guild's programs will benefit existing and new craft persons by providing training and education for people interested in an entreprenurial career or an avocation in fine or heritage crafts. The demand for handmade crafts is growing steadily, and the growth in heritage and cultural tourism all over the world is fueling this rapidly expanding market.

Our Mentor/Apprentice Program matches people interested and committed to a craft with a master craftsperson in their area of artistic interest. This program allows the apprentice to perfect skills and gives insight into the entreprenurial side of craft. Learn more about the mentor-apprentice program here...
