Just signed up for my third blacksmithing class at BCC, I've learned alot as a weekend warrior in the trade, and had a good time doing so! Knowledgeable and friendly staff. I would recommend to anyone interested in learning a craft or trade that this is a great place to start.

It's nice too have a local Art's and Craft center so close in proximity. I have seen some very fine artists come through this area educational center. There are day classes galore to partake of or multi-week sessions to hone the full complement of you're art motivations

I found the experience at Brookfield to be somewhat pedestrian. I'm not sure if the people who I studied under actually had any field experience. The website said that they were nationally renowned. But when I went to other craft centers like Penland School of Crafts or Silvermine Arts Center. They didn't know a thing about Brookfield Craft Center. Why would an institution claim notoriety when they clearly don't have any true reputation. Snake Oil is what I say. Take classes here if you want to learn to make buttons and nicknacks. But if you want to express yourself through the crafts go some where else!
