Each semester the Studio Arts & Craft Centre offers short-term workshops to teach different skills and techniques. Attendees pay a fee to receive instruction and supplies and end up leaving with a piece(s) of their own, along with new skills to keep making on their own!
Fall 2022 Workshops and Registration
Because the Craft Centre is not able to open our studio space for the Fall 2022 semester, we are working hard to provide other opportunities for creative learning and making.
**The Studio Arts & Craft Centre reserves the right to cancel workshops due to low enrollment. In that case, attendees will be notified one day prior to the start date by 10am and will receive a full refund.**

Art Field trips
The Craft Centre is organizing field trips! Opportunities to visit other amazing MKE studio spaces and take a one-day class are being arranged for sewing, bookmaking, and possibly other skills. Transportation will be provided for those who’d like it, and a small fee will be charged. You’re going to make some incredible things, see some wonderful spaces that you can go back to in the future if you’d like, and have great, creative experiences, sometimes in art spaces created by UWM alumni! So cool!
Thursday, Nov. 17 / 5-8pm / Location: The Bindery, 347 E. Ward St, MKE, WI 53207
