The League of NH Craftsmen Launches a New Online Presence for its Education Program at The Craft Center

CONCORD, NH – The League of NH Craftsmen is pleased to announce the launch of a new online presence for its education program in The Craft Center at the headquarters in Concord, NH: www.nhcrafts.org/courses. The education section of the League’s website has a fresh new look and easy navigation to the League’s educational activities at The Craft Center on 49 South Main Street in Concord, as well as access to other classes and demonstrations that are being held statewide at the League’s fine craft galleries.

The League of NH Craftsmen offers craft classes for all ages and skill levels in a variety of media, including clay, fiber, glass, metals, wood, and other media. All classes at The Craft Center are taught by master craftspeople, all of whom are juried members of the League and have classroom teaching experience. Class sizes are small and the setting is informal and relaxed to promote creativity and fun.

There are one-day workshops, multiple classes, and demonstrations and lectures. New classes are regularly added. The Craft Center has two classrooms and is currently building a new metals studio for jewelry making.
