 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!

    Winter is the perfect time for this inwardly-focused art form.

    The design of the mandala is meant to be visually appealing so as to absorb the mind in such a way that chattering thoughts cease, and a more philosophic essence envelops the maker. In this workshop, you will learn the technique of setting up a mandala, a bit of its history and how to make this type of radiant drawing. No art experience is required, and all materials are provided.

    Lunch not included, but snacks will be provided.

    Susan Aripotch has drawn all her life, and in 1995, she invented the mandala, or thought she did. Many mandalas later, she learned that countless others had been experiencing their magic for eons. She has welcomed hundreds of children and adults into the self-revealing world of making the circle in workshops such as this.
