About the School
The Lotus School of Traditional Arts and Crafts is a small private school focusing on handicrafts, arts, and music of the traditional worlds.
Our mission is to support, preserve and pass on traditional crafts from East and West, while offering students the joy and insight that can be derived from learning to make beautiful objects by hand. The school will give students the opportunity to study with masters of various arts and crafts who will impart skills and wisdom from cultures that are on the verge of disappearing.
By the furthering the practice of traditional arts, we hope to transmit handicraft techniques as well as an intuitive understanding of beauty and form as passed on by generations of traditional craftspeople. For serious students, encountering these cultural currents can enrich their imagination and expand their horizons.
We believe the practice of arts and crafts serve as an antidote to the technology-focused lifestyles many people live today. Especially for children and teens, the practice of handicrafts can teach them calm, patience and focus and the experience of being wholly absorbed in their work. Through practice and perseverance, they will discover they can make something of beauty and value, using threads, pigments, papers and inks — and their own two hands.
