Meet Our Makers

Meet Our Makers

Have you ever looked at a work of art or craftsmanship and wondered, “How did they make that?”  Now’s your chance to get your questions answered by practicing local artists.

You’re invited to our summer “Meet Our Makers” events featuring live interactive demonstrations by the artists and craftspeople of the Coastal Craft Gallery.  Occurring each Tuesday from 5 – 7 pm beginning July 11th, local artists at the gallery will be demonstrating a variety of art techniques including print making, photography, and wood bending.  Each artist will share the tips, tricks, and hints that only come from years of experience.   Sessions run through August 8th as follows:
