Many schools and community centers offer free courses and workshops for anyone interested in arts and crafts. Some courses are designed for children and adults alike, and you can acquire a lot of skill in very little time if you have a good instructor.

Here is a list of courses I can recommend from personal experience:

  • Arts & Crafts 101, Middle Grove School
  • The Art of Jewelry, Museum of Fine Arts
  • Pottery for Parents, Middle Grove Community Center
