Workshops and classes are offered in ceramics, fiber, metals/jewelry, painting, drawing, photography, warm glass, woodturning, woodworking, mixed media, books and paper.

Arrowmont’s workshops are designed to provide creative opportunities for anyone who wants to learn new skills and be energized and inspired. Weekend, one-week and two-week sessions offer a concentrated experience of working in a professionally equipped studio with dedicated and talented instructors and other students.

Workshops are open to students 18 years old or older, at all skill levels unless indicated otherwise in the course description.

The deadline is early enough (mid March) that chances are still high you'll be able to secure the class you'd like. If a class was full they'd very likely ask if you'd be interested to take a different one instead.

What a wonderful opportunity, thank you! Just curious--the classes fill up quickly, don't they? What if the class of choice becomes full?
