Workshops & Events
Learning and experiencing art is what we at Artsworth do. By providing unique workshops to our community members, whether they are children, teenagers, or adults, we are able to open the doors to creativity and show all who wish to learn about the beauty of crafting high quality work with your hands and heart. Workshops are held at 25 Pine Street and range from learning about how to manipulate molten glass to how to solder metal to how to sculpt out of clay or fiber. Our goal is to remain open to suggestions and ideas of how to meet the interests and needs of our community by providing a space for all teachers to share their craft with students of all ages. We hope that if you have a great idea that you wish to share with others, that you will come to Artsworth, share our space and share with us. Below you will find a list of current offerings: check back as our list is always changing! Teach a workshop!

Art Talk with guest jeweler Tom Ferrero
Art Talk with Guest Jeweler Tom Ferrero
On February 19th, Artsworth will be hosting guest lecturer Tom Ferrero for a free presentation about him and his work as a metal artist and jeweler.
Tom is a metal artist and Assistant Professor of Jewelry at Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is also the Department Head of a metal arts program at Camp Laurel in central Maine where he has taught students ages 7-70.
He is a first place winner of the Niche Award and the International Saul Bell Design Award Competition. He has also been featured on the cover of Metalsmith Magazine and is published in several jewelry books.
Tom’s lecture will discuss his work, process, and approach to design and construction. He will discuss his early work and its development with a special emphasis on his latest work, The Mace.
We are working with Tom to organize metalsmithing workshops at Artsworth in the future. If you are interested in taking a workshop with Tom someday, this lecture would be a great opportunity for introductions to him and his work.
