Learn with Dogwood Crafters

Classes are offered April through November. Join us for some new classes as well as some favorites from years before.

Unless otherwise specified, classes are held at the Masonic Lodge #459, 223 Wilkes Crescent Circle, Sylva. From Business 23 between Sylva and Dillsboro, turn on Wilkes Crescent Drive. At the top of the hill there is a large water tower; turn on the drive near the gate and go through the gate.

To register for any class stop by or call Dogwood Crafters at 828-586-2248. Please have your name, phone number and email (optional) ready to register. Normally registration deadline is a week before the class. Class fees are paid on the day of the class. All payments must be in cash (no credit cards). The volunteer instructors work hard to keep the cost low; the fees cover the use of the Masonic Lodge. Our classes are offered to fulfill our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.
