Cascadia Center for Arts & Crafts teaches the traditional crafts used during the WPA Era and in the construction of Timberline Lodge, as well as contemporary classes & workshops. Some of the renovations on the Summit Campus will also be presented as workshops in small milling of timber, rock work and other trades.
Studio spaces include a 4 forge, blacksmithing shop located in one of the historic buildings of the Summit Campus; The original Raven Studio building with glass studio, large overhead ventilation system, 2 large kilns, 2 smaller annealing kilns and 4 minor burners for torch work. The Raven Studio has upper painting/ drawing and multi use space, as well as The Trillium Studios’ large flat screen for Digital Photography and class slide shows.
The natural scenic beauty of Mount Hood is a constant inspiration for both instructors and students. Cascadia Center completes a circle of regional art centers located throughout the State of Oregon, showcasing the Cascade Mountain Environment and beautiful Mount Hood. Our project respects the environment, history and traditions of WPA Crafts and Cascadian Architecture.
