Underglaze Transfer: single day workshop Mondays, 11:00 – 2:00pm. July 18. During this single day workshop, you will learn about the process of underglaze transfer.

No experience is necessary. Instructor: Abra Karbin. $60/student, $51/members.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
