About Us

Our Mission

The Student Union Craft Center, established in 1971 through the efforts of students, serves to enrich UMass Amherst and Five-College life. The organization provides craft instruction and facilities in an inspiring and encouraging environment. It is a multidisciplinary agency that fuses art, teaching, and business, while cultivating freeform entrepreneurial artistic education without academic restriction for students, faculty, and staff of UMass and the Five College communities.
