Why the university dont set handicrafts course, so that the traditional art can be passed by the students and the market of crafts will be expanded.

lots of universities DO have handcraft courses.  Look for them in the Art Department.  Ceramics, weaving, collage--pretty much limited only by who wants to teach what.

Another good place to ask is a museum.

The museum in my town is a combination art gallery and local history museum, and so they have the contact information of many different groups who do crafts (like the Northern Ontario Textile Artists, for example).

If not an actual daytime course, look at their evening and night classes too. 

Also, look through you local historical society, museums affiliated with the school, any sort of re-enactment place...  Also, try small locally owned craft shops.  They do tend to list classes too.  Smiley  (Not so much the big box type stores).

I work at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  They offer a good number of craft type classes, including Native Arts.  It's phenomenal- otherwise there are a bunch of local groups that run different programs here and there too.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
