Adult workshops are offered several times a year. Local or visiting artists run the workshops which are often in connection with the exhibitions. A variety of classes are offered  – a sampling of what we have done includes plein-air painting, printmaking, basket weaving, creative journaling, screen-printing, collage, book making, quilting, yoga and more. We provide coffee, tea and light snacks. Payment must be made during registration. No cancellations are permitted within one week of the class except for unmitigated circumstances.
