Classes in Clay/Pottery, Metalsmithing, Jewelry & More

CraftStudies at the Hanover League of NH Craftsmen provides opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to learn from experienced instructors. Students explore, experiment, and express themselves in the applied arts of clay (both wheel throwing and hand building), metals (jewelry and small sculpture), and other media.

We encourage experimentation, exploration, and artistic expression. Experience the satisfaction that comes from handcrafting something unique and beautiful! 

Our classes for children, tweens, and teens, take place in all three studios and are listed on the children’s page. Some adult classes also allow teens.

The tuition charged for classes does not cover the full cost of classes. We are grateful to the following organizations, as well as individuals, for supporting our effort to promote the art-of-craft!

  • League of NH Craftsmen
  • Hypertherm

Unrestricted gifts from individuals, foundations, and corporations continue to be an important source of support for CraftStudies' classes and camps.
