Summer 2024 Workshop Registration

Open Registration: 12PM on Monday, June 3
Summer Orientation Sign-Ups: 10AM on Monday, July 1

It's time to stretch those creative muscles just in time for spring! We're excited to see what
magic you make here, next term, at the Craft Center.

Non-students must have a UO Community Card to register for Craft Center
workshops. UO Community Cards are issued through Card Services. To get a UO
Community Card, visit emu.uoregon.edu/community-card.

 

Located in the EMU, the Craft Center has studio spaces for darkroom photography, woodworking, glassworking, paper arts, printmaking, fiber arts, jewelry and metalsmithing, painting and drawing, and ceramics. Each of these studios comes equipped with professional quality materials and tools for members to craft with. If you're unfamiliar with a studio space or certain tools, just ask one of our staff for a tour. Craft Center workshops are also a great way to get to know the space before using it solo. Our facilities are not meant for mass production or creating products for resale, instead we give our members the freedom to experiment with their crafts, collaborate, and explore new artistic possibilities.

The Craft Center is open to UO students, faculty, staff, UO alumni, and community members. For more information on how to access the Craft Center, please visit our FAQ page.
