Haywood Community College Professional Crafts second year students will hold a reception on campus at the Mary Cornwell Gallery in the Creative Arts Building Wednesday, September 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend Collaborative Projects:  A Cross-Pollination of Mediums and Ideas.

With partners, second year professional crafts students executed a design and created an object or line of objects combining two specific mediums. The pieces could be functional, non-functional, abstract or representational.

HCC offers a two-year intensive course of study in Clay, Fiber, Jewelry and Wood. Course work in each program is carefully designed to provide a firm foundation in studio technique, with design and craft history classes offered to give a thorough comprehension of the craft experience. In complement to the core craft course, students take classes in marketing, studio and business planning and craft photography. This blend of studio craft and business courses prepares the student to achieve the skills necessary to become viable independent studio artists or to become valuable, skilled employees in the expanding craft industry.
