YES, classes have resumed following 3 cancellations due to Covid surges in early 2022. See you in the studio!
In the fall of 2021, Arbutus Folk School began offering free, dedicated open studio time for BIPOC artists and community members (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) with ceramicist Mariella Luz of m.bueno pottery.
This program was made possible through the leadership of a small group of local ceramicists, the generosity of thirty regional artists who contributed to our fundraising auction, and the support of dozens of donors and auction participants as well as the Nisqually Indian Tribe. Thank you!
You can help this program continue and grow by earmarking a donation here. Please help us spread the word about this opportunity to members of the South Sound community by sharing on your social media and through word of mouth.
To participate, please register for an upcoming session through our website here. Attend as few or as many sessions as you’d like, and check back often to see when new dates are posted for sign-ups. Pre-registering guarantees you a spot, while drop-ins may be turned away if the class has reached capacity. Please note that this is currently the only class at Arbutus that is accepting drop-ins.
