Some studio areas require a Studio Orientation to acclimate you to the space and how the studio functions. These are for students with some prior knowledge in a given medium and studio - otherwise we welcome you to sign up for a class or come in during one of our Tech Times. We also have links to DIY youtube videos for several studios under "studio use". A schedule of Orientations will be available from our Front Desk. Orientations are also available during our Tech Times. There is a link to the online ceramics orientation under "studio use".
We recently put out a call for yarn and oh boy did you respond!!!!!
Your help rejuvenated our crochet club with a vengeance. Students have so many choices now! In addition to learning for free during our crochet circle, they can come in any time and start a project. It can be so easy to forget that for students, $5 in supply costs can make the difference in whether or not they are able to try a new hobby.
I work in a Craft Center, and taught art for years, but let me tell you: Gen Z is a crafty bunch! It makes my Gen X heart warm to see them in a group, crocheting, and chatting away.
This year we also received a big donation of glass, which meant that students were able to learn stained glass without purchasing any! And stained glass is BIG right now. Without that donation, there is no way that the vast majority of our budding stained glass artists would have been able to learn. Thank you thank you thank you.
To our community of support, I just can't thank you enough. Please know what a difference you have made for students <3
