Youth and Family Classes

We offer weekend workshops, weekly after school classes (and half-day week-long programs during the summer). Small classes and our highly skilled and professional artist/craft teachers and assistants will offer lots of individual help and allow each child (or family unit) a hands-on exploration of their personal creativity and the process of making. Classes may include Glass Beadmaking, Wood Turning, Painting Blacksmithing, Jewelry making, Fiber, Fused Glass and Clay.

Full 2017 Adult and Student Curriculum for fiber arts, forge, glass, ceramics, woodturning and jewelry classes.
