How do I register?

Participants may register online at ASI Connect or in person at the Craft Center. Registration begins the first week of every quarter.

Can I use the Flameworking Studio whenever the Craft Center is open?

The Flameworking Studio is available to qualified participants while the Craft Center is open and flameworking classes are not taking place. However, when participants are working in the studio outside of their class time, there is a fee of $.02/minute to pay for the gas involved in running the torches. Prepaid flameworking minute cards can be purchased at the front desk of the Craft Center as a convenience.
