The Professional Crafts Program at Haywood Community College  is a unique contribution to craft education and excellence in craft practice in western North Carolina.  The school offers a two-year intensive courses in Clay, Fiber, Jewelry, and Wood. In addition to sharpening their technical and artistic skill in their chosen medium, students also create a marketable line of production work, plan a studio, and become familiar with the craft market.

The HCC campus opens at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains.  Designated as arboretum, the campus invites visitors to use the walking trails, outdoor picnic tables, and disc golf course.  The Professional Crafts Program is housed in the school’s Creative Arts Facility with a dedicated studio for each craft discipline.
