The Jumpstart in Ceramics workshop is coming up August 26.
We don’t want to ruin your day and say that summer’s almost over.
So instead, we’ll phrase it like this: there’s still time for more creativity before Labor Day! We have 15 different workshops going on in the next couple of weeks, starting as soon as this Friday.
One- and two-day workshops take place over the weekend, while the handful of longer workshops take place during the week: perfect for a relaxing staycation. (Are you ready for Fall already? Find the full catalog on this page.)
