For classes that are 15 hours and over, students will have access to the studio in which they are enrolled for the duration of the semester. For classes less than 15 hours, students have the option to sign up for other classes and/or purchase a membership.

Workshops are focused sessions that are held for several consecutive days. Workshops do not include additional studio access; however, students will have access to the studio during the time in which the workshop is being conducted.

Crafts Center classes are extracurricular, non-credit classes.
