New Winter Catalog, Shop Deals, Giving Tuesday, Prosecco & Presents

Winter 2023 Catalog Now Available

The registration period for Winter 2023 semester opens next week, but you can peruse all the new classes and workshops NOW in our new online catalog.

Find something just for you, OR remember that experiences make terrific holiday presents! We have something for everyone … beading, blacksmithing, ceramics, drawing, fiber, glass, leatherworking, metalsmithing, painting, sculpture, weaving and more. Most classes are open to all levels unless otherwise indicated; all adult classes are open to 13+ years.

Remember! The Winter 2023 semester will have a scheduled registration period, to relieve demand on our online registration system.

Nov 28 – Adult weaving classes open for registration at 10AM
Nov 29 – Adult metals classes open for registration at 10AM
Nov 30 – Adult ceramic classes open for registration at 10AM
Dec 1 – All classes open for registration at 10AM

Also, we’ve updated our website to include more user-friendly pages of information and search options for classes and workshops. You can check it out HERE. It’s an easier way to browse our programs and then directly link to the registration pages.

We think this new schedule of registration will provide a smoother experience for everyone. Let us know if you have questions.
