Information about ART CLASSES/WORKSHOPS
Unless noted otherwise, fused glass workshops are conducted by our main art instructor, Jennifer Snook. Ceramic painting workshops are held by Jennifer or by Brittney Combs. Workshops typically last 1 1/2 to two hours, but it depends on your project. Some people finish more quickly.
If items need to be fired, they will be available for pick-up approximately one to two weeks after the workshop, after they have been fired in the TCC kilns. The cost of the workshop includes firing and supplies. After firing, items are held for pickup in the Rotary Jail Museum gift shop. (During the winter, when the museum is closed, you will make arrangements with the instructor to pick up the items from her directly.) Stop by the gift shop during museum open hours to get your item. Workshops are designed for adults/teens/older children. Younger children can attend if accompanied by an adult.
If you are bringing a child with you, and you and the child are creating one piece together, you only need to pay for one registration. If you are each creating a piece, you need to register both of you. We do not recommend bringing very young children to fused glass workshops, as the glass is sharp.
Register for art workshops on www.Eventbrite.com. If you do not wish to pay online, you can come to the museum during open hours and pay in person, prior to the workshop. Then a space will be reserved for you! Some workshops have a limited number of items available, so please register in advance! Thanks!
Workshops are held in the Tannenbaum Cultural Center at 107 W. Spring St. in Crawfordsville, located behind the Rotary Jail Museum. The TCC is wheelchair accessible and has a wheelchair accessible rest room.
For many workshops, we also have larger items than can be completed for an additional fee, or premium supplies that require a small extra charge (such as dichroic glass at the fused glass workshops). For example, at our ceramic and fused glass workshops where you choose your own item, the workshop prices are often based on a small item. If you choose to make a medium or large item, there would be an additional fee. (For instance, a nightlight is considered a medium-size item, so if you sign up for a fused glass workshop to make a small item, there would be an additional $3 fee if you want to make a nightlight cover -- which also includes the nightlight base.) If you choose to make a larger project at a workshop, or use an item like dichroic glass, you can just pay the upcharge at the time of the workshop.
