Who We Are

Pocosin Arts offers opportunities for discovery, creativity, and lifelong learning in the arts. We provide year-round craft workshops, weekly adult and youth classes, and residencies in metals and jewelry, ceramics, woodworking, drawing, painting, textiles, digital fabrication, and more. Located near the Outer Banks in Eastern North Carolina, we support the arts in our local community and worldwide with our online and on-campus workshops.

Our Campus

Nestled on the banks of the Scuppernong River, our campus is the ideal venue to host a workshop, conference, or symposium. Whether you're planning a large professional gathering or an intimate retreat, we have the space to suit your needs for presentations, training sessions, demonstrations, and socializing. Studios for hands-on learning (ceramics, metalsmithing, and digital fabrication), and a kitchen are also available.
