SkillSet teaches people to build, design, create and share.

Our goal is to help foster a thriving and resilient community of people who make cool things as a way of life. We run classes for kids and community partners in person at STEAM Studio and online, and we teach everything from making custom electric guitars to sewing hand-dyed fabric.

Our program is funded by tuition fees, donations and grants from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, and the Windgate Foundation. We receive generous support from UNC Asheville.
