Fall Workshop Schedule 2016

fall festivalWe are scheduling workshops a little differently this fall from what we did during the summer. . .

Workshops will be biweekly instead of every week and will be offered on both Sunday afternoon from 1:00 to 4:00 and Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 9:30.  This is the same workshop offered at different times. All adult workshops will be $20 unless stated otherwise. Kids Krafts will also be biweekly on Saturdays from 1:00 to 3:00 and cost $10. As always, if the day and time don’t work for you we can make other arrangements. Or if you have a group (friends, scouts, etc.) we can schedule a private session for you. This schedule is tentative and subject to change but it will give you a heads up on what’s to come. To insure that there will be bisque for you to paint, please register early. We may not be able to accommodate last minute requests. Workshop medium is acrylic stains unless noted otherwise in the description.

Please note that Kids Krafts Saturday Workshops are for the whole family. You can come with or without kids so if you see something here you would like to make come on down. You can drop the kids off and go shopping or you can stay.  Most workshops are designed for kids 5 and up but sometimes 3-4 is okay with help. Please refrain from “helping” the older kids with their projects; make your own instead.


There are no workshops scheduled for the first week of fall (last week of September).

We have tried to design our Fall Workshops with things that you will enjoy making. However there are lots more items to choose from. Just check out the tab called “bisque” on the menu bar. There are no specific “tree workshops” because people make trees throughout the season. If you want to attend with a friend but are not interested in the workshop item, you can make whatever you want. Cost is the price of bisque (see the catalog for pictures, sizes, and prices) plus a $5 studio fee. Remember to order your bisque at least a week before the workshop so we have time to pour, clean, and fire it for you.
