Who are Pocosin’s students?  Anyone who enjoys making and the creative experience, from beginners who wish to learn something new, to intermediate and advanced students. Most workshops welcome all experience levels.

What makes Pocosin Arts an exceptional craft destination?  Pocosin offers a personal, friendly experience, in our well-equipped studios, and comfortable lodging.  A prominent presence in the Town of Columbia, we are on the corner of Water & Main Streets, just steps from the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge and the beautiful Scuppernong River Boardwalk; lined with cypress trees, abundant wildlife and places to sit. For meals participants enjoy local restaurants serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner all less than a minute’s walk from our studios. Participants may also prefer to join with others or individually to prepare meals in the lodge kitchen. The close proximity of studios, lodging, restaurants, nature and the charm of Main Street make for an exceptional Craft School Experience.

Pocosin Arts participants enroll in one workshop per session and typically stay in our comfortable Riverside Lodge. This provides the best opportunity for an immersive learning experience while enjoying camaraderie with fellow students and instructors. The minimum age for Pocosin Arts’ adult workshops is 18.
