Remote classes & Workshops
As we continue to inspire and build a creative community through the promotion, appreciation, and teaching of craft, we are excited to share a selection of ONLINE classes and workshops in a variety of mediums and difficulty levels!
Community building and creative nurturing remain at the core of our programs. We want to provide an opportunity for our community to keep their creative juices flowing and to connect with each other and with us once more during this socially-distanced time. Granted, this style of learning will be new to all of us and it will certainly be a different experience from our in-studio programming. However, we're hoping these offerings will add a NEW and EXCITING dimension to our teachings, and we hope that you'll consider signing up!
Invest in yourself. Take a breather from the stresses of this challenging period and carve out some "me" time away from it all. Find creative catharsis in craft, learn something new, and safely engage with new and old friends.
Invest in us. Your participation will also help the Craft Center as we continue to navigate through uncharted waters on a path to re-opening and bringing back all the unique, multidisciplinary programming that you've come to know and love.
