HCC instructor elected to Craft Guild Board

Written by 

Haywood Community College Professional Crafts Wood instructor Brian Wurst was recently elected to the board of the Southern Highland Craft Guild in Asheville. 

Wurst graduated from HCC’s Professional Crafts Wood program in 2001 and began teaching at the college in 2007. The Southern Highland Craft Guild Board of Trustees is composed of nine members, elected by the membership to serve a three-year term. The board of trustees meets four times each year, at which time the board receives committee reports, acts on Guild policy, approves budgets, reviews programming, plans for the Guild’s future and offers guidance, support and counsel to the executive director. 

The Southern Highland Craft Guild, chartered in 1930, now represents close to 1,000 craftspeople in 293 counties of nine southeastern states. The Guild holds the largest and most important collection of Appalachian craft in the world.
