We are

A space for everyone to be an artist. No matter what your background is, here you can shed the stress of everyday life and escape to a creative paradise. Maybe you’ve never even held a brush but have always dreamed of painting a masterpiece, or you want to rekindle an old passion for the kiln before the holiday gift-giving season. For many of our members art is about exploration. After a long week it can be therapeutic to let your eyes wander over the crafting shelves until something catches your interest. Whether it’s a charcoal pencil, silk screens, or stamp carving, feel the tools in your hands, let go of your thoughts, and start crafting.

Join Our Team
