Michael and Baben Patricelli

Affordable community craft classes taught by craft artists with local and regional reputations are held on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. This program is for everyone; affiliation with the university is not required.

A Craft Enrichment class would make a GREAT gift.

Welcome to the Michael R. Patricelli Craft Enrichment Program's home on the Web. Whether you are a hobbyist, an advanced student, or someone who wants to get started on a hobby you’ve always wanted to do, plan to take one of our lively, creative/energizing classes. Small classes provide individual attention from faculty who are dedicated professionals committed both as teachers and craft artists.  Learn alongside fellow artists-at-heart. Have time to see where an idea leads in studio-based classes that promote development of artists at all levels. Explore your creative self and develop your distinctive artistic signature.  Most classes are offered on the campus of Appalachian State University, Boone, North Carolina.
