Let's design your project
I learned more than I had ever dreamed I would. It's the ideal place for learning about making art in community. And, yes, the community is great. Sitting and drinking coffee my second morning, I got to...chat about the spiritual significance of ceramics. Where else do you find that?

The Guild community is grounded in ecumenical Christian hospitality and embraces people of all backgrounds and beliefs.
