Hatchlings & Hens Craft Camp

In addition to our open studio hours, we also offer both adult and children’s classes that give us the opportunity to provide more hands-on instruction.

The registration fee for each class is non-refundable. In the event that a class is canceled the registration fee will be refunded.

So that we can plan accordingly for our supplies, online registration will close 48 hours prior to the date/time of each class. However, if you’d still like to register after the 48 hour window, please contact us by phone at (319) 610-3223 and we may be able to accommodate you if our inventory allows.
