Ed Hoy’s classes offer something for every level of artist. We offer introductory through advanced level techniques and bring together the widest variety of artists from throughout the world to share their skills with you. Sessions range from 3 hours – 5 days and are designed to inspire by exposing you to new concepts, materials and new ways to design.
