During the arts and crafts portion of summer camp, children are generally required to braid hard, unmalleable twine in the hot sun for the benefit of unscrupulous friendship-bracelet vendors.

The Fuller Craft Museum is situated on a luscious 22-acre campus complete with sculpture garden, nature trail, and interior displays of contemporary artistic crafts. Current exhibitions include The New Materiality: Digital Dialogues at the Boundaries of Contemporary Craft, where viewers can feast their sight-spheres on crafty creations forged with new technologies in tandem with traditional craft materials such as clay, glass, wood, metal, and fiber. Conceptual and functional woodwork pieces displayed in Boxes and Their Makers encourage guests to stop and think outside of the boxes that form the brain. The museum also features a variety of workshops, such as the Halloween Mask workshop on Saturday, October 23 (members $8, nonmembers $10), alongside a variety of other activities for glue-stick fanatics of all ages.
- This is a special place that echoes its surroundings and community. Despite the economic climate, recent exhibitions have broken attendance records, and membership is growing. With an unwavering commitment to craft, we will continue to bring vibrancy, accessibility and dialogue to the art, to the field, to our neighbors, and beyond. We’re defining, redefining and celebrating craft.” – Wyona Lynch-McWhite, as quoted on ArtDaily.com
- I highly recommend the Fuller Craft Museum to both adults & kids! – Diana G., Yelp
Fuller Craft Museum
With its lofty ceilings, slate floors, natural wood beams, and floor-to-ceiling windows that give sunlight some rare exposure to high culture, the building that houses the Fuller Craft Museum is itself a work of art. The 21,000-square-foot structure is surrounded by a 22-acre campus, which is itself surrounded by some 700 acres of woodland. It's a place to easily lose an afternoon in exploration and contemplation.
Across this wide-open space, creativity flows naturally. Exhibitions, galleries, and workshops showcase the mesmerizing craftsmanship of woodworking, sculpture, bookmaking, and many other forms, exploring the materials, techniques, and expression poured into each piece. Interactive attractions draw visitors deeper into the creative process. Letterboxing, for instance, challenges them to search the property for hidden treasures by following clues instead of just lazily asking a neighborhood pirate.
