Creative campus planned for downtown Asheville
Asheville Citizen-Times writer Emily Patrick writes about the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design's (CCCD) plans for The Hive, "[a]n arts campus that would provide space for craftspeople, artists and designers to create, test and market new products." The Hive would be located in the CCCD's building in downtown Asheville.
"When complete, The Hive will include the makerspace, the coworking center, a nontraditional conference facility and rooftop event space, and the galleries that already exist on the ground floor — the center's Benchspace Gallery and a Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center expansion."
The center has raised $500,000 for this project and wants to raise $1-2 million more before beginning.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
