Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Miami University has officially cancelled all face-to-face classes for the first summer term. This unfortunately means that CraftSummer must cancel our program scheduled for April and June.

Currently we are in the process of rescheduling some workshops to run towards the end of July. We will update our website as soon as we have dates and classes lined up.

We are also exploring the concept of creating workshop style classes to be offered online with the hopes of having a few classes available this year. It will include personal instruction, demos, live critiques and live feedback from the instructors. More info will follow soon.

We wish you well. Stay safe.
