FAQS


The Craft Center is funded through student fees paid to the University Union. All studios are specifically intended for students to enjoy at their leisure. That being said, staff and faculty are eligible to use the facilities as are members of the community. Since students are partially subsidizing the facility with fees, all customer costs are structured so that students pay the lowest amount for services and classes.

Ceramics, flameworking, baseball bat making, bike repair, surfboard shaping, skateboard deck building, jewelry making, and stained glass. *Note: These offerings are subject to change.

Participants may register for activities at ASI Access or in person at the Craft Center. Registration opens during the last week of the quarter prior and remains open until classes start (typically the third week of the quarter.)

Craft sales are coordinated twice a year, once before Thanksgiving and once before Mother's Day. Visit the ASI Craft Center on Facebook for specifics.

The Craft Sale is an opportunity for both students and members of the community to sell their handmade crafts on campus. Applications to become a Craft Sale Vendor are available in the Craft Center and online. A variety of crafts are accepted.
