What is Open Studio?

Drop-in opportunity for you to choose your pathway based on what you want to do. You pay a cover charge and get on with making! If you’d like more instruction or want to learn new media, we offer classes and private lessons.

During Sensory Friendly Time, noises are kept to a minimum and lights are off in the studio.
