Have you ever wanted to try your hand at working in a craft medium? In these exciting half-day (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) workshops for ages 14 and older, you will learn new techniques and processes while creating hands-on projects in the medium of your choosing. Projects vary and may utilize different materials and techniques per session/instructor.

Projects examples may include:

  • Blacksmithing – forged steel hooks, leaves, or bottle openers
  • Ceramics* – wheel thrown (June 8) or handbuilt (August 25) clay mugs, tiles, or small sculptures
  • Glass* – marbles, beads, or small objects/sculptures created with flameworking/fused glass techniques (not glass blowing)
  • Metals & Jewelry – making metal rings, pendants, or keychains
  • Painting & Drawing – sketching/drawing using colored pencils or different paints for still lifes, portraits, or scenery

*Some projects in ceramics or glass may require that you pick your items up at a later date due to the need for kiln firing.

Dress appropriately as you will likely get messy! We recommend all participants wear closed-toe shoes, restrain long hair, and avoid wearing loose clothing or dangling jewelry. If you try Blacksmithing or glass, wear cotton or denim clothing (avoid cuffs) and closed-toe shoes are required (no flip-flops or sandals). We will provide safety glasses and ear plugs where necessary.

Please check in at Blaney Lodge between 8:15 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. Workshops begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. within their designated studios.
