The safety and success of the creative community during COVID-19 is important to Craft Lake City.Click for Updates
In support of our mission to educate, promote and inspire local artisans while elevating the creative culture of the Utah arts community through science, technology and art, Craft Lake City holds DIY workshops all year long taught by some of Utah’s most skilled artisans and STEM exhibitors. Workshop topics run the gamut from gourmet food to floral arranging to fiber arts. Take a workshop to perfect a skill, kick-start a new hobby, meet like-minded people and support the local maker movement. Year-round workshops are supported in part by the Salt Lake City Arts Council, George S. & Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, and Utah Arts & Museums, with funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts.
As the situation surrounding the novel coronavirus / COVID-19 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.

If you wish to be added to our waitlist, please arrive 15 minutes prior to the workshop and check in with a Craft Lake City representative. You will be added to the waitlist in priority order based on the time you arrive (first come first served). Five minutes prior to the workshop start time, Craft Lake City will begin to invite waitlisted individuals to purchase workshop tickets on site and take the place of absent participants. Please note that Craft Lake City cannot guarantee a spot to those on the waitlist.

While we cannot offer refunds or exchanges, your ticket is transferrable.
