CEDAR LAKES CRAFT PROGRAM
"One of the features in the original plan for the Cedar Lakes Conference Center was for a crafts program and an art and craft center in which to house the program.
Organized craft classes were first held in 1957 under the direction of Ronald Thomas, a consultant for the WV State Department of Education, Division of Vocational Education. Since the craft house was not ready to use until 1961, the first classes were held in various cottages. Weekend classes started on Friday evening and ended on Saturday afternoon or evening."
We now offer weekend and week-long classes throughout the year.
