General Studio Support

We invite you to reconnect with the essence of your creative journey and show your support for our program. Step back into the radiant Rock Room, where you once honed your skills in Basket, Broom, and Chair Seat classes. This spacious studio, filled with natural light and equipped with a dye-cooking stove and work sink, holds countless memories. Its rock-covered exterior harmonizes with the natural surroundings, reminding you of the inspiration it provided. As you reflect on the impact this space had on your artistic growth, we humbly request your contribution to sustain and enhance our program. By donating, you empower the next generation of artists, ensuring they have the same opportunity to embrace their passions and unleash their potential. Join us in preserving the legacy of the Rock Room and continue the artistic journey for future students. Together, let’s create a lasting impact through your support.

Explore The Studio

Rock Room

Natural light pours into the spacious Rock Room, the main studio for our Basket, Broom and Chair Seat classes. With lots of open space to spread out, a stove for cooking dyes, and a big work sink, this a great space that neighbors our Woodworking studio. The name Rock Room comes from its rock-covered exterior walls that fit right in with its natural surrounding.
