The Worcester Center for Crafts is New England's Center for crafts education, advocacy and entrepreneurship. Established in 1856 as the Worcester Employment Society, the Center forged a tradition for economic empowerment by teaching immigrants the skills needed to create and sell crafts.
Today, The Worcester Center for Crafts is a non-profit, independent, community based arts organization, committed to providing quality craft education, supporting entrepreneurship in the arts, and promoting an appreciation for fine craft.
On July 1, 2009 the Worcester Center for Crafts forged an alliance with Worcester State University. Beginning in January 2010, University and community began sharing studios at 25 Sagamore Road.
