Fine Craft Expo 2024
We are so excited to offer our Annual Fine Craft Expo to our local community on February 3 & 4, 2024.
What is the Fine Craft Expo?
The Expo is a two-day workshop event with 3 hour workshops offered on Saturday and Sunday in February. A group of classes are offering in the morning from 9am - 12pm and in the afternoon from 1pm - 4pm. Our classes allow our community to try a new fine craft and leave with a beautiful piece of artwork. *Most students are able to take home their project the same day. Some projects may need to be picked up at a later date due to firing in kilns such as Glass Fusing. No guarentee is made that you will complete your project within the workshop time frame, however every effort is made to ensure you are able to bring home a finished piece.
