Maker’s Workshop Series

The Everhart Museum Maker’s & Master’s Workshop Series gives adults an opportunity to try their hand at traditional crafts or to study with a master artist.

Maker’s can expect a one-day 101 class in traditional craft with a professional artist. This class is for beginners or all levels. Each class will be 2 hours in length and will have a take-away.

Master’s can expect an all-levels to advanced level workshop, studying with area professional artists to expand their skills in traditional crafts or fine art. The course will be between 3-5 days, depending on the class.

Upcoming Maker’s Workshops:

October 11, 2018- Adult Glass Fusing with Gina Rice

5:00 to 7:00 pm
$20 per person (supplies included)

Students will enjoy a small gallery talk about the Dorflinger glass exhibit in the Museum, sketch inspirations and create a small work of their own inspired by the exhibit.
During this one-day workshop, students will learn about glass safety and using glass tools before rolling up their sleeves to create a one of a kind fused glass wearable or hanging glass object. The art glass creations will be anywhere from a half inch to a two inch by two-inch square and can include a fused sun catcher, earrings, pendant or bracelet (student’s choice). The pieces will be worked cold in class and fired in a small kiln after the class.
A master class series in glass-fusing will be available after this workshop.
