Prospective student tours are scheduled Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Tours of the main campus at Tennessee Tech can be scheduled by contacting TTU Admissions at 931.372.3888. Please keep in mind that the Craft Center is located in Smithville about 30 miles west of Tennessee Tech's campus in Cookeville.

Note: The Craft Center offers other tours of the facility for groups only. Tours must be scheduled in advance in order to notify our faculty and studios. The studios are not open to the public on a "walk in" basis. The Craft Center is a school, with studio classrooms, and we do not interrupt our students at work.
