Custom Private Workshops

Private workshops are available at Daniel’s studio in Asheville NC. Daniel Essig’s studio is located within the Grovewood Village, a group of historic buildings located next to the Grove Park Inn. Grovewood Village was built in the 1920’s and originally housed Biltmore Industries. It now includes two fine craft galleries, 10 artist studios, two museums and a restaurant.

Workshops are custom-tailored to students’ needs. Any workshop Dan is currently offering, or that he has taught in the past, is available as a private class. (If you are interested in designing your own project, some extra cost may be required for materials.) Materials are supplied, and a gourmet lunch is included. Normal hours are 9 a.m. -4 p.m., with an hour for lunch.

Private Workshops are limited to 1, 2, 3, or 4 students.

1 student $450 per day per student
