Adult Gift Membership $60
Adult gift memberships give recipients access to our space and all social activities. They also come with borrowing rights for a specific subset of our luminous collection and access to classes that compliment that collection. We have multiple different gift memberships available in each season. Examples include:

Shelter – Beautiful umbrellas + introduction to knitting scarves and hats.
Warmth – Handcrafted Ceramics for coffee and tea + Workshop on baking for teatime.
Light – Handcrafted lamps and luminaries + Workshop on lighting Feng Shui.
Movement – Artistic mobiles to borrow and make + Introduction to Dance Improvisation.
Words – Framed original art featuring inspirational text + Introduction to storytelling for families.

Child Gift Membership $40
Child gift memberships give recipients access to our space and activities, and borrowing rights for child-approved items. These are not limited to toys and “kid things” (although we have great ones!), but include a wide range of items from both collections that are safe, durable, and less expensive to replace.

Opportunities to reduce membership cost:
We hope to make membership at CGS available to all community members who want to participate. We encourage those with limited financial resources to consider our Work Study program, Artist Residency, the Fixers Fellowship, and the Teaching Fellowship.
