Join us Thursday, May 12 for a free Remake Learning event, 4:00-5:30 pm.
Tour Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild, a world-class youth arts education facility that teaches ceramics, photography, printmaking, laser engraving and 3D printing. Visitors will get an inside look at the world-renowned arts education model that is being replicated globally.
Participants will experience a “raku” firing in the Ceramics studio. This Americanized version of a centuries old Japanese firing process involves red hot pottery being drawn out of the fire and placed into a bin with combustible material. They will also see a demonstration of screen printing in the Design studio, which is one of the world’s most popular methods for printing on fabrics such as t-shirts, as well as for creating fine art prints the way legendary Pittsburgh-born artist Andy Warhold did. While supplies last, visitors will be able to take home examples of these crafts.
