Adult Class: Life Drawing Studio

Every first Sunday of the month join other artists at ArtHaus with your sketchbook for life drawing practice with live models.

Treasure Tins & Tiny Tomes

Using paint, collage and stamps we will transform a common tin into a vessel for a decorated accordion book or keepsake keeper.

Lark’s Head Book of Envelopes

Larks Head Binding is a technique that allows you to bind single pages into a hardcover book. For this class we will be binding envelopes to hold treasured ephemera or notes.

Choose a Friday at least 2 weeks in advance: Adult Wheel Throwing

Wheel throwing takes practice, but everyone needs a little instruction to get started.  Spend an hour on a Friday night (after 5 pm) learning how to prep the wheel, center and form a cup.

Then come in Saturday to trim the bottom (free of charge) or get an Open Studio Pass and use the wheel as much as you like whenever we are open.  Wheels cannot be used without an intro class.  Classes must be registered for at least two weeks in advance to secure a spot.

This class is one guided session.  You pick the date by putting it in the notes section at check out.  If you would like more guided lessons add as many to your cart as you would like and include those dates as well.
