Classes at HomeGrown

Swirl bracelet, switch plate, tin treasure box can all be made by kids.
Children especially love working with polymer clay. Whether it's the bright colors or the ease  - perhaps it's the awesome tools you get to play with - it's very appealing. In the course of a two hour period it's amazing what children can accomplish. Not caught up with whether a piece is technically accurate, children's projects tend to flow - enjoying the process and not thinking so much about the final outcome. And they are thrilled with what they produce – switch plates, bracelets, tin treasure boxes, brooches.

HomeGrown Arts and Crafts runs children's classes on Wednesday afternoons and we also run a workshop on Saturday afternoons (provided we have at least 6 participants). We welcome teams of children and adults - it's a great way to reconnect in a fun, creative environment. Pre-registration and payment is required. Our classroom is cozy, providing seating for up to 10. This allows for the perfect size group for individual attention if needed. And if you don't see something that works with your schedule - we're happy to run a custom class or workshop from as little as 6 students to best accommodate a time that works for your group.

Sardine Can Shrine by Sally Dean - another fun class.
If polymer clay is not your thing - we have loads of fun projects up our sleeves. Give us an idea of what you'd like to learn and we'll customize a class just for you - children or adults - or mixed. From paper mache owls, to faux stained glass windows to sardine can shrines - we do it all!

And in case you're wondering - yes, we do birthday parties!
