MakerSpace: Upcycled Art with Aspen Johnston

Thursday, November 17, 2022
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Free for Members or included with Museum admission; registration is not required

Drop into our studio to experiment freely and collaborate using different materials, tools, and techniques! Visit a chosen artwork in the galleries for inspiration, then head to the studio to create. All ages and abilities are welcome (children must be accompanied by an adult); no reservations are required.

This month, participants will work with local artist Aspen Johnston. Working with recycled materials, come experiment with wire sculpture, recycled materials, and hot glue,  to express your unique inner animal turning what we view as “trash” into art.

Make sure to check out our newest exhibition, Rebel/Re-Belle for inspiration for the upcycled MakerSpace.

Please note:

  • In accordance with Buncombe County and city directives, a limited number of people can be in the studio at one time. To ensure all participants have time to create, we may ask you to limit your time.
