Welcome to The Workshop, an art and craft studio for people of all ages. Explore the site to learn about upcoming classes, specials and the gallery.

Check out our Open Studio Hours, also open additionally by appointment.

Summer is past, but if you find a class on this page that you like, contact us and we can schedule it at a time that is convenient. These classes were some of my favorites.
