 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!

    Join us for the biannial Seconds + Supplies Sale on Saturday, June 17!

    What is a Seconds + Supplies Sale?
    This sale is a casual outdoor market that is intended to provide an opportunity for the public and fellow artists to purchase studio supplies, materials and equipment, as well as seconds (final products not quite right for full price retail or wholesale shows and stores) directly from Maine artists. Designed to support artists, have fun, and help shift extra materials from people who don’t need them to people who do!

    Artsworth is coproducing this fun event with the Maine Crafts Association-Shop Maine Craft project.  Shop Maine Craft provides Maine Crafts Association members with opportunities to expand their economic resources through retail sales, fine craft shows and special events.

  • Sat
    10:00AM-3:00pm25 Pine Street Ellsworth, Maine, 04605
    A weekend of open studio activities! Artsworth annually creates this "hub" of fine arts activities in the building we share with our glassblowing neighbor, Atlantic Art Glass.
    It's a great celebration of creativity by local makers and you can find many here in one dynamic location. 
    Linda Perrin's team of glass makers will be demonstrating traditional glassblowing all day as they make glass pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors!  The studio of Atlantic Art Glass will be turned into a glass pumpkin patch as the molten glass is pulled from the furnace, blown and hand formed on the end of a blowpipe. There are bleachers set up and refreshments provided for your comfort as you watch demonstrations. The glass pumpkin patch charms visitors of all ages! 
    Fogtown brewery located in the building, will be slinging wood fired pizzas and their delicious and creative brews including cider, beer, wine and seltzers. 
    The following artisans plan to fill the gallery and parking lot with Autumn inspired work for sale. You will find pottery, weaving, fiber art, house wares, painting and sculpture. Everyone will be showing, selling, demonstrating and discussing how they make their work.
