Art or craft classes in Basel?

I am trying to find art or craft classes in Basel (any! I am open as completely unartistic so just want to try something new )

Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Art or craft classes in Basel?

You could look into the various art courses offered by the Migros Klubschule. They have a pretty broad range of activities for beginners (ceramic, glass, painting, fashion design, flower arranging, scrapbooking, etc). Or, if there is some artistic thing that you've been itching to try you can usually take a "schnupper lektion", a free or reduced-price trial lesson from any private workshops that offer courses. See if you like the activity before diving in. You may find that pottery gets your fingernails unacceptably dirty while glassblowing is your undiscovered passion.

Re: Art or craft classes in Basel?

I have heard good reports about the Migros art classes, as always it depends on the teacher. I've been participating in the "offentliche" classes at the Basel School of Design http://sfgbasel.ch and would recommend the school highly. I also offer classes (Drawing and Sculpture) from my Atelier in Aesch on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Re: Art or craft classes in Basel?

Is there a place in Basel to purchase craft supplies, specifically scrapbooking? I'm doing my best to search but am coming up with nothing. Thanks!

To A johnson, one of the EF members sells scrapbooking material so you could check it out with (I think it is dlpeiyee but I am not sure).
Otherwise there is a store near schifflande where they sell wool and other stuff as well as one near barfusserplatz, sorry I can not be more specific
