Gallery Info:

The Worcester Center for Crafts is a non-profit community-based arts organization committed to sustaining craft as a vital part of our community. Established in 1856 as the Worcester Employment Society, the Worcester Center for Crafts is an organization that still sees the value of craft in improving the quality of life for Worcester residents. In the early days, the Center forged its tradition of economic empowerment through craft by teaching the skills necessary to create and sell handmade crafts primarily to immigrants and immigrant women.


In its current state, the Craft Center offers classes in a variety of media, holds community events, and houses the Krikorian Gallery with an ever flowing line up of gallery exhibits. The Gallery Store is part of our mission to support artists and craftspeople across the U.S. and North America by representing them and their work and bringing awareness to all that walk through the store. The store contains handmade American craft by over 500 artists, including Juror, Kristen Kieffer.
