Worcester Center for Crafts kicks off Youth Craft + Creativity Program Sept. 24

The Worcester Center for Crafts will introduce their new, innovative Youth Craft + Creativity Program at a free event 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Craft Center, 25 Sagamore Road. Classes in the new program are designed with an integrated, multi-disciplined approach to youth education for ages 6 through 17 that is creative, fun and hands-on. The Sept. 24 program is designed as a sneak peek into the Youth Craft + Creativity Program and will provide information, demonstrations, and hands-on activities – plus an opportunity for advanced registration at a discount.

The Craft Center has developed the Youth Craft + Creativity Program in response to parents, artists, educators and community members who have said it is needed – and needed now. “We’ve identified a void in Greater Worcester that we are trying to fill,” said Honee Hess, executive director of the Worcester Center for Crafts. “This new approach to craft education offers youth 6 to 17 a window into creative 3-D thinking, knowledge of materials, and the mind skills and habits needed for the 21st century.”
