Carnegie Hall Holding Spring Classes and Workshops

According to a press release from Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg, registration has opened for spring classes and workshops. The spring roster includes small, in-person, socially distanced classes and classes that offer students the option of being online or in-person.

The course offerings include weaving a farmers’ market basket or a stadium basket; clay classes for kids and teens; hand-building clay for adults; wheel-throwing clay for adults; beginning harp for adults; acrylic painting for kids and adults; watercolor painting for adults; printmaking for kids; and make your own Valentine décor for children and adults.

The earliest classes begin the first week of February. Courses continue into June. Registration is extremely limited due to the small class sizes, so Carnegie Hall encourages participants to register early. Carnegie Hall anticipates adding additional classes, including ones that will meet outside, as we move into spring.

All participants in the in-person classes will be screened for COVID symptoms at the door and must wear face coverings the entire time they are in Carnegie Hall. Participants will socially distance and will have individual sets of materials and tools.

Scholarships are available for youth 18 and under and seniors who live in Greenbrier County.

Students can register or get more information by visiting or calling the Box Office at 304-645-7917 between 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Carnegie Hall is located at 611 Church Street in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
