    Make a Glass Bead with Tara Parker

    artsworth_torch

    Reservations available between 10am-2pm
    $40.00

    This experience introduces you to the basics of flameworking and offers a focused experience with hot glass. Tara Parker demonstrates how to work with molten glass at the torch, and guides you through the process of making one of your very own glass beads.

    You’ll start by turning a mandrel - a metal rod used in beadmaking - in the flame.

    Melting colored glass rods in the flame and applying the molten glass to your mandrel will create your bead design. How you wind the glass onto the mandrel makes patterns and beautiful unique glassy designs.

    Students should expect to spend one hour in the workshop as Tara makes her way to your turn the actual time spent making a bead is a fairly swift process and usually takes about 20- minutes.

    Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day, or shipped within the US and Canada at no additional cost.

    Age requirements- 18 and over

    Written and Directed by Sophie Cameron, Home in Time for Suppah is sure to be a treat:

    Ms Maxine, an eccentrically endearing music teacher, is missing and it’s up to her students to find her.  Along the way they run into creatures, spirits, witches, and even a princess! Based on an interwoven collection of Downeast tall tales, scout songs, and the work of Maine’s Queen Poet: Edna St. Vincent Millay,  and featuring talented actors aged 8-22, Home in Time for Suppah ensures that the legends of this coast shall be as immortal as any ghost.  Come enjoy warmth, comedy, and adventure!

    This event is free to the public, although we will be accepting much appreciated donations to Artsworth and the YWCA; suggested donation: $10. Donations from all three performances will be split between the two organizations, who have partnered with Sophie to provide practice and performance space for this production.
    Sophie Cameron, a Senior at the College of the Atlantic, developed this production as her senior thesis. It is a culmination of several years of work and academic study in theatre and childhood education.

    Warping Weaving Workshop

    Freestyle Hand Weaving with Master Weaver Susan Perrine

    102_9716photo 2

    10 a.m.- 3 p.m.
    $60.00 • Supplies included

    This workshop is designed for beginners or anyone wanting a warping refresher. All levels are welcome.

    Students will choose yarns from our supply to create a one of a kind textile, such as a scarf, table runner or hanging fiber art by combining yarns of different weights and colors. Weave fabric to adorn your home or body while learning how to thread your loom, or ours.

    You will have access to a warping board and warping mill, and will learn how to use your tabletop to make a warp. Next a large variety of yarn and fiber of all types, colors and weights will be made available to you to use in your "scarf". Susan Perrine will show you fun and useful new techniques like creating a buttonhole, tapestry weaving, and lace insertion.

    Think of this workshop as a kind of weaving sampler, where you can explore different techniques and traditions that speak to you with Susan's expert guidance.

    You may not finish your piece during the workshop. But we plan to have our weaving studio open for students to continue during the following 3 weeks. More information on open studio time will be discussed during the workshop.

    Students will make small warps with about 100 warp threads/ends. (about 3-3 1/2 yards by 9 inches wide).

    All materials needed to make a complete piece will be provided. Although, specialty yarns (cashmere, silk, hand spun yarn, etc...) will be available for an additional cost.
