    Workshops are directed to inspire play, while learning through hands on activity and process. Participants leave with a creation, but in my mind it's less about the product and more about the experience of play and creative opportunity.
     

    Workshops have been held in libraries, schools, museums, during street festivals and for corporate team building events. Contact me for more info, pricing or to book a workshop.

  • Testimonials

    Image courtesty of One One Thousand, Beth Skogen Photography.

    "Gentle, open minded, approachable - his teaching style created just the right vibe for exploring creativity and getting our hands making."

    - Sarah Artz, One One Thousand

    "As our Artist-in-Residence at MPL, Craig shared his talents as an artist and his wonderful gift of teaching in hands on creative workshops for children of all ages. Rather than simply doing the minimum workshops requested as part of our residency, Craig went above and beyond to do more workshops for children and at risk youth with our teen and youth services librarians. Teaching the entire process of printing, from design to screen burning and printing, Craig has loved to share his expertise with us, and the public. He is exactly what we were looking for in a Maker for the Bubbler space. He completely embodies the library’s mission of Learn, Share, Create."
