While in some ways creating art is an individual pursuit, there are common traits that connect across makers: a desire to expand our skills, furnish our homes, surround ourselves with the handmade, and join a community of dedicated craftspeople. We believe that craft can both preserve traditions and beauty – and that craft can act as a counterbalance to a disposable and consumer-reliant world. Making is essential to us. We are excited to share a place where anyone can grow in their skills and fulfill their creative pursuits.

The Woodworking School at Pine Croft
Keeping Traditions Alive
Berea College has re-opened the former Kelly Mehler School of Woodworking under the leadership of Berea College Head of Woodcraft Andy Glenn as The Woodworking School at Pine Croft. Both Andy and Berea College are dedicated to preserving the fundamental character the school has been known for as we move the school into its next phase. The Woodworking School at Pine Croft further supports Berea College’s 120-year commitment to the preservation and promotion of craft.
