Giving to the Craft Center

A wellspring of well-being.

From first-time explorers to seasoned crafters, our Craft Center community delights in creative expression in our daily lives. As the reimagined Craft Center prepares to open in the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood, we invite you to play your part in making it the best it can be.

True to the spirit of the campus’ original Craft Center, the new space will be a vibrant and cherished location to welcome students, employees, faculty, and friends from our campus neighborhood. It will be a place inspiring creators of all skill levels to learn and practice the living art of craft. A bridge across generations. A place to unwind.

While UC San Diego has made a significant investment in building the Craft Center, the project relies on your philanthropic commitment. With your support, the Craft Center will be outfitted with state-of-the-art tools and equipment, and will be as productive as it is restorative. Please join our movement of crafters supporting craft and make a gift of any size today.
