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!

    Make something really special - a gift from the heart! You will transform molten glass into a small solid heart shaped paperweight with our expert help. This experience allows you to work with hot glass up close, with help from our glassblowers.

    You’ll start by choosing the glass colors you want to use in your solid glass heart, and then partner with our professional glassblowers to create it. After applying and heating the colors you will sit at the glassblowing bench and learn how to use the “pucinellas” to shape and swirl the molten glass. When the interior design is complete, the glass will be cased in clear crystal, and shaped into its final heart form. Although this is a swift exercise it reveals ancient glass techniques, that are a true wonder to experience.

    Age Restriction -14 years or older, under 18 accompanied by an  adult.

    Call 207.664.0222 to reserve a spot.
