Craft Expo, Artspace Exhibit, Kids Summer, Vegan Bags

We want to thank everyone for their support of Craft Expo 2023.
Mother Nature sure did make things challenging this year, but we were thankful to be open on Friday and Saturday. Your support of art and artists is important and appreciated. Link HERE to all of the artists in the event; please find them online and continue to support their work! This event is Guilford Art Center’s largest fundraiser; we also ask that you continue to shop here and enroll in classes all year long. And make plans to be back on the Guilford Green in July 2024!

Upcoming Workshops

This workshop is geared towards the “absolute adult beginner” to come learn the basics of painting and drawing in a supportive, judgement-free session. Spend the morning in the GAC studios and learn about basic techniques, materials and approaches to working creatively in two dimensions. Come discover your creative potential.
Instructor(s) Scott Paterson.

Saturday-Sunday, July 29-30, 10:00am-5:00pm
In this workshop students will hot punch holes in 1 1/4″ round bar, split the face of the hammer and then forge a spike off the back end. Heat treat and hickory handles….then some testing on a steel drum! Students will need safety glasses, dust mask or respirator, leather work gloves, (welding gauntlets not needed) and should wear jeans, a non-flammable cotton shirt and/or jacket, and closed-toed boots or leather shoes. Our forge is an outdoor building that is only semi-enclosed; please dress accordingly. For full-day workshops, please bring a lunch to be on the safe side, as there may or may not be time to get food during a lunch break. Instructor(s) Mace Vitale.

Saturday, July 29-30, 10:00am-4:00pm
Students will learn to use a torch to melt glass rods, creating personalized colorful beads. Many decorating techniques will be demonstrated, including enamels, metal foils, flowers and more.
