In-Person Craft Workshops & COVID-19 Update:

As the situation surrounding the novel coronavirus continues to evolve, Craft Lake City would like to affirm our commitment to our creative community. The safety and success of our local makers, volunteers, workshop instructors, event attendees and staff is important to Craft Lake City, and we are carefully monitoring the COVID-19 recommendations with regard to our public programming and future events. At this time, in-person workshops are canceled until further notice. We hope to reschedule them for a later date, and refunds have been provided to all ticket holders.

 

Craft Lake City’s year-round programming is supported in part by the residents of Salt Lake County through the Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP) Program, the Salt Lake City Arts Council, George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, and by the CARES Act and the Utah Legislature through the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.
