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!

Please join us with returning weaving instructor Susan Perrine as she guides you through the creation of a Mobius/Infinity Scarf.
Get ready to create a one of a kind woven accessory. Learn about the Tabby, Herringbone, Twill or Goose Eye patterns as you design your own woven project. You’ll have access to all sorts of warping and weaving equipment including one of the looms made available in the studio.
We will have our meet and greet and begin our project by choosing yarns of different weights and colors from Artsworth’s lavish supply. After you choose your warping material, the important lesson of warping the loom will start us on the right path.
Get into the zone of creativity as patterns are created and the weft fiber is woven into the warp to create your very own fabric.
On Saturday lunch snacks will be provided in the form of a hearty soup (vegetarian), sliced baked bread, local cheese etc. Feel free to bring something to share, or an item for yourself if you have dietary restrictions.
Students will resume their projects with a mind to finish them by the end of the day. Susan will demonstrate cutting the fabric from the loom, finishing the ends and if you like fashioning the fabric into the mobius shape.
