Brookfield Craft Center is dedicated to removing any financial barriers to those who wish to learn the skills of a fine craft and explore their creativity. We offer scholarships to persons of all ages and interests without regard to race, gender or religious affiliation. We want to enable as many students as possible to participate in our classes taught by highly skilled artists and craftspeople. Scholarship assistance comes from our Scholarship Fund, contributions from various foundations and other existing named scholarships that support specific programs.

We offer programs for adults, teens, and children throughout the calendar year plus a Summer Youth Program in July and August. Scholarship recipients may experience classes in any one of our 8 studios offering classes in: Digital Arts, Ceramics, Glass, Fiber, Forge, Jewelry and Metalsmithing, Painting and Drawing, and Woodturning.
