Established in 1964, Craft Alliance provides inspiration and education in fine contemporary craft to the entire community through exhibitions, sales and instruction.
The brainchild of six local craftspeople, Craft Alliance began as a cooperative gallery in the Central West End in St. Louis, MO. In 1969, the organization moved to its present location in The University City Loop, which provided more exhibition space as well as a studio for the instruction of classes in the craft media.

Over the years, Craft Alliance has continually grown to meet the demands of the community through the expansion and betterment of the Gallery, Education Center and community Outreach Programs.
Craft Alliance earns over 70% of its operating income from tuition, sales, and membership. Craft Alliance is a funded member of the Arts & Education Council of Greater St. Louis and receives support from the Regional Arts Commission, the Missouri Arts Council, individuals, corporations and foundations.
