Artisan Mentoring Scholarship program

Thanks to a generous grant from the Pace Woods foundation, Woods Hall Studios is pleased to offer a limited number of mentorship opportunities within ceramics, weaving, jewelry, mixed media, and fiber arts. This program is designed for artisans interested in building on an established skill set (either within their own medium or to develop skills in a new area). Beginners are encouraged to begin enrolling in a class rather than apply for a mentorship. Applications are currently being accepted for the winter term, with deadline of September 1st, although applications will continue to be accepted until filled. Applicants will be notified by September 30th and approval is based on the number of available funds, experience of apprentice in chosen medium, and experience of mentor. Please submit the application to pastor@stjohnsmadelineisland.org, or woodshallgallery@gmail.com.

Wire-wrapped Pendant workshop

Monday, September 16th, 2:00-5:00, with Island artisan Alan Gomez. Bring your own stone or beach glass to make a one-of-a-kind silver or copper wrapped pendant.
