The Mission

The Craftwork Training Center exists to allow mentors to teach participants various vocational crafts and by doing this elevate the concept that "The ARTS" are a worthwhile Objective to pursue in life. This mission encourages both the experienced and the aspiring artisans of the future to practice and perfect their skills at this center in order to increase their individual marketability and to gain personal enrichment through the experience.

The Means

What makes Craftwork Training Center unique over all other craft schools is that we foremost acknowledge that being able to make a livable wage from a trade is crucial to the future success of the trades. We maintain a “NO STARVING ARTIST” motto to keep the hands-on trade work honorable and envied among peers. Our goal therefore is not only to foster and grow a new generation of tradespersons but to network with building owners and professionals across the USA to link job leads and people who can potentially service the lead. If someone has a contracting business and they want to add more value by training themselves or their employees with new skills they can begin to network with us for training and finding potential new forms of work. If someone wants to start their own new business or desires to just obtain gainful employment with an existing firm we are all about promoting jobs through craftworker.net

Our Unique Trademark, Method and Planned Outcome

ARTisAn Objective® is the Trademark symbol of the Craftwork Training Center. It is branded into all of the workshop program titles to emphasize both the Art and the Artisan. Hands-on workshops are taught by devoted craftspeople that are willing to transfer their skills to a new generation with the hope of producing the juried-quality artisans of the future. A highly trained generation of artisans will then be prepared to build, repair and beautify the future. This we believe is a noble and worthy goal in moving forward the ongoing legacy of "The Trades."
