Twenty six years ago, the artists and staff of the Sawdust Festival put into place an idea they had been brooding over for quite awhile – expand the summer Sawdust to also present to our visitors a Winter Fantasy, an holiday-themed art and crafts festival. It was the first step to the Sawdust offering year-round art shows, classes and workshops. From that fledgling first year, the Winter Fantasy has proved to be a resounding success. While the summer show has its own unique personality, the Winter Fantasy presents a different and perhaps even more exciting visual experience for our customers, with vibrant holiday decorations and colorful lighting found throughout the grounds. And one important part of the summer Sawdust has remained consistent with the Winter Fantasy – our tremendously talented artists continue to create some of the finest art and crafts found anywhere in the world. Medias include hand-blown and fused glass, painting, jewelry, surf art, ceramics, clothing and textiles, wood and metal sculpture, scrimshaw, photography, and so much more. MORE INFO
Sawdust Art Classes serve a unique population of both local and visiting patrons, providing year-round art classes in a variety of medias from ceramics and glass to jewelry and screen-printing. The SAC program highlights the artistic history of Laguna Beach while providing professional Sawdust artists the opportunity to teach their craft in hands-on classes. MORE INFO
New to the program, Sawdust Art Classes After Dark. Classes are offered in the evenings for students that
are looking for something fun to do at night in Laguna Beach. Class dates & prices vary.
Custom classes are also available for your next party or corporate event. Classes can be taught on the festival grounds or our instructors can travel to your location.
