Saturday Samplers

Box of Chocolates

Have you ever wondered "How do they do that?" This is your chance to "taste a technique", "sample a skill", and "cool  your curiosity."


And...just as that box of chocolates woos us into spontaneously taking a bite now and then,  Saturday Samplers can be spontaneous or planned.  A different skill  will be explored each week.   If you are a planner, save  some money and register and prepay ahead of time. You'll  receive a $10 discount on the sampler.  Wake up on Saturday with  a craving and a need to create?  Walk-ins are always welcome.  Be advised however, that class size will be limited so get there early.


What do you get when you cross a Saturday Sampler with an Open Studio? 

More fun and more value for your investment.


Open Studio time is moving from an evening session to Saturdays from 12:00 to 3:00 PM*. Bring your latest project and a snack to share, find a comfy spot to work and enjoy the companionship of other crafters working on their pieces.  There is no charge for Open Studio.  Taking a Saturday Sampler?  You are invited to stay on for Open Studio and keep working on your project.  In most cases your teacher will still be around for some advice.  And you'll find help and advice from others who are also hanging out and having some creative fun.


*Open studio will be cancelled on exhibit openings and holiday weekends


Chase away the winter doldrums.  Indulge your creative urges.  Download our complete catalog of offerings for this season.
