Mission Statement

The mission of Tryon Arts & Crafts is to provide creative opportunities for everyone through education, instruction, and expression of heritage and contemporary arts and crafts in a friendly, stimulating and enriching environment.

Description

Tryon Arts and Crafts School teaches hands-on classes and workshops in pottery, jewelry, weaving and fiber arts, blacksmithing, glass, lapidary, woodworking, and more. To promote the extraordinary artisans and craftspersons in the Appalachian foothills, we host special exhibitions in the Exhibition Gallery, maintain a permanent Heritage Collection, and sponsor festivals on our park-like grounds at Harmon Field on the banks of the North Pacolet River in Tryon, North Carolina. Tryon Arts and Crafts School was established in 1960 as a key part of the grassroots movement that led to the development of Tryon as an artists’ colony. Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is supported by membership dues and donations. Members enjoy access to open studios and discounted classes. We invite you to join our friendly, stimulating, and enriching community by taking classes and workshops, browsing our galleries, spending time in our studios, shopping in our gift shop, and getting to know more about arts and crafts in the Tryon region.
