There are a number of different opportunities and programs designed to teach someone a craft.  We offer short  workshops to longer apprenticeships which can last for a number of years.  The primary education which is offered at the Guild is aimed at not only learning the technique of the craft, but at the education and growth of the craftsman or woman, as a whole person.  For most of us this three centered approach, involving the heart, mind, and body, is a life long learning process.
