 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!

    This one-day, multi-media workshop is designed for visual artists and makers of all kinds-including writers- who want to explore this work in image, memory, and words. Each participant needs to bring the following materials: (1) a notebook or journal to write in; (2) a pen or pencil to write with, (3) a pair of scissors, (4) an example of your work (portable, not enormous), and (5) a readiness to see and hear what you make freshly.

    Workshop limited to 12 participants. All skill levels (in your craft and in words) welcome. 

    Time will be allotted for lunch, feel free to bring a bag lunch to enjoy in the studio, or to go with Candice on a short walk to main street in Ellsworth where you can purchase yourself a tasty lunch at 86 This or Flexit Cafe.

    Candice Stover is a poet and teacher who designs and facilitates workshops in writing and literature focusing on discovering who we are in words. Her workshop experience includes the voices of children, decades of courses for college students, two years in Shanghai, three published collections of poetry, and continuing work with a women's writing group she began in 1992 on Mount Desert Island where she lives.
