The HCC Professional Crafts Program is a two-year commitment, focusing on all aspects of becoming an independent craft professional. 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 Folk Art Center is open daily from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Admission and parking are both free.
