Masters Symposium 2016

Since 1998, the Academy has hosted an annual Masters Symposium in April, inviting prominent master craftsmen from across the country and overseas to teach workshops in their areas of specialization. Traditionally, a reception and slide lecture by visiting masters is open to the public via RSVP each Wednesday evening during the Symposium.
