pioneer handicrafts teaching with children DIY homestead arts

Homestead Arts keeps alive the traditional arts and crafts that are in danger of being forgotten.

Each month we will bring you a different class or workshop, for adults or families, to explore and create in the old-fashioned way, by hand!

For a small fee you can make something to take home or give as a gift, and all your supplies and tools are provided. The revenue earned from these classes help support the Singing Creek Educational Center. If you wish to pay for an additional space in the class, we can make that available to someone who would like to go but can’t afford it. If you would like to be on our list for scholarships, please email us at

Classes may be held at different locations: New School in Eugene, the Granary at Singing Creek Center, the Schoolhouse at SCEC, or other locations. So check the class info carefully!

See our events calendar for complete info about each class. (Have a suggestion for a class that you’d like to see? Contact us about tell us all about it.)
