We’re so pleased to release the new spring catalog, filled with in-person and online classes and workshops for kids and adults. Classes kick off the week of March 29 and run through June 5. Registration will continue to be online only.
Class sizes for on-campus gatherings will continue to be limited and with a strict masking mandate and all other protocols in place, in order to operate safely. 
Classes and workshops are available in a variety of mediums, including beading, blacksmithing, calligraphy, ceramics, drawing, fiber arts, metalsmithing, painting, photography, sculpture, and weaving. Have kids? Make sure to check out the April break week sessions for kids ages 9+ and 13+.
