The Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts at historic Shelton House will open on May 1 for the 2012 season.
In addition to Tuesday through Saturday tours conducted by Curator Jackie Stephens, the museum will offer a series of special events and Friday night lectures and demonstrations throughout the May-October season.
A kick-off celebration will be held on May 4 for members and sponsors. Shelton House is striving for growth in membership to inspire a broader appreciation of the extensive collection of crafts on display at the facility. Membership entitles cardholders to visitation privileges at the museum as well as to its numerous events.
