Design Your Own Class

Would you like to learn a technique in metal, clay, or other medium but we are not offering a class in it, or our schedule does not fit yours? Call our office (603 643 5384) and we will arrange something for you. This could be a private lesson(s) or an opportunity for you and a group of friends to do something fun and productive; or the celebration of a special occasion like a birthday.

Birthday Parties

We offer birthday parties for adults and children that incorporate making something special. In either the metals (ages 10 and up) or mixed media studio (5 years and up) we provide the instructor, the creative idea, and the materials … you provide the friends and the refreshments. Call 603 643 5384 to arrange this!
