We are a big happy creative family here, and during the summer we open our studios up to the next generation of makers and crafts-persons. Our small, customized camps are created with age appropriate projects that support our campers in developing skills, confidence, and creating beautiful objects.  We’ve been passing down the heritage of hand-made for over 70 years, and we hope that your family joins us for a very exciting and productive summer.

Our 2018 Summer Camps will be online December 2017

Make sure to sign up for our e-news to get notified of camps first!

What is the rhythm of each day?

On the first day, we meet as a group (all camps) we go over expectations, introduce all staff and give guided tours. After that we break into our smaller groups and go into the studios.  Ages 5-7 yrs. old have snack break 10-10:30 am, with play time, once the kiddos are inside, the older groups meet outside for their break.  At 12 pm the 5-7 yrs. old kids get picked up, and then the older kids break for an hour lunch, free play, and activity.  At 1 pm we return for afternoon activity depending on the camp. At 4 pm ages 8 yrs. old and up are picked up and go home. On Friday we have our art shows.
