We believe in the power of creative play and building self sufficiency through heritage craft traditions like woodworking and fiber arts. All of our program offerings are based on the notion that kids are smart and capable of some pretty tough work. Pair great materials and instruction with creativity and the freedom to make mistakes, and you've got a place where kids thrive on making and doing. When kids explore materials, ideas, and techniques in a safe place, they can both succeed and fail with the confidence of knowing that it's all part of the process. We've taken what we know from more than a dozen years working with kids and created programming that speaks to the crafts-person in all of us.
Fall classes run from September-November. See our FALL CLASS SCHEDULE to learn more + register.
