Brookfield Craft Center's Sampler Series of workshops and
classes are intended to encourage beginners to try something new. For students
and even professional artists, trying a new art medium can be intimidating.
These specially designed courses demystify a craft by inviting you into a
studio, introducing you to a mediumís process and giving you hands on
experience. Choose from short workshops in specific media or weekly classes
that cross disciplines with a common theme. You might just find your new artistic
calling, but you will never know unless you give it a try.
Try something new for 3 to 4 hours in a Sampler Workshop.
Get an overview of the technical processes and creative possibilities of a
specific medium. Acquaint yourself with the tools and equipment used in the
studio and experience a hands-on introduction to the materials. Between tuition
and materials, a Sampler Workshop will always cost less than $100.
Under a unified theme of bowls or jewelry, a Sampler Class
will gain you access to three different studios over 7 weekly classes. Study under
three different faculty members and address design, form and function of an
object through multiple disciplines. After finishing your Sampler Class, choose
a medium to pursue, or continue on with other courses in the Sampler Series.
