Every year, OSU holds Family Weekends in fall and spring, and the Craft Center always offers some great family fun for these weekends! Examples of activities we've held for Family Weekends include special one or two session workshops, t-shirt printing, and pottery painting events. Workshops have ranged from paint nights and ceramics sessions to fused glass and jewelry making sessions. We'll list upcoming Craft Center Family Weekend activities here, and more information on OSU Family Weekends, including a full list of events, can be found at families.oregonstate.edu/family-weekends.
