In a world of sameness, craft illuminates difference

Incorporated in 1897, the Society of Arts + Crafts has been at the forefront of the American craft movement for over 120 years. Our founders developed standards of excellence in design and technical mastery for crafts that inspired the American Arts and Crafts Movement.

The Society's mission is to support and celebrate craft makers and their creativity. On the eve of our 125th anniversary, the organization is embarking on a bold new strategic plan to apply our efforts towards promoting the relevance of craft in the 21st century. 

The Society of Arts + Crafts is supported by the Mass Cultural Council
