Get ready to create at the Craft Center this spring! Sign up for one of their many classes on anything from drawing to jewelry-making to welding. Most classes will be held online, but the Flameworking 101 and Glass Pendants classes will be held in person, outdoors and physically distanced. Studio reservations are also available for those who have already completed the studio orientation.
