Historic Preservation Boot Camp

The Mission:

The Craftwork Training Center’s mission is to elevate the concept of “The ARTS” as a valuable objective in life by teaching vocational crafts to participants through experienced mentors. The center aims to encourage both experienced and aspiring artisans to practice and perfect their skills, increasing their individual marketability and personal enrichment.

The Means:

The Craftwork Training Center distinguishes itself from other craft schools by recognizing that being able to make a livable wage from a trade is essential to the future success of the trade. The center maintains a “NO STARVING ARTIST” motto, which promotes hands-on trade work as an honorable and enviable profession. The primary goal of the center is not only to foster and grow a new generation of tradespersons but also to network with building owners and professionals across the USA, linking job leads and people who can potentially service the lead. If someone has a contracting business and wants to add more value by training themselves or their employees with new skills, they can network with the center for training and finding potential new forms of work. If someone wants to start their own business or obtain gainful employment with an existing firm, the center promotes jobs through craftworker.net.

Our Unique Trademark, Method, and Planned Outcome:

The Craftwork Training Center’s trademark symbol is ARTisAn Objective®, which is branded into all workshop program titles to emphasize both the art and the artisan. Devoted craftspeople teach hands-on workshops, transferring their skills to a new generation with the hope of producing the juried-quality artisans of the future. The center aims to prepare a highly trained generation of artisans who can build, repair, and beautify the future, promoting the ongoing legacy of “The Trades.”
