Upcoming 2024

Glass Mosaic Workshop with Noah Lagle: Saturday, May 25 -  10:30 am-4:00pm
Join us for an exciting introduction to mosaic making. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of mosaic art, from design through production. You'll be guided through the every step of the process and there is no experience necessary. All materials will be provided. By the end of the day you'll leave with a unique piece of art and the knowledge you'll need to continue making and learning about mosaics. Light refreshments will be served, but bring your lunch to round out the full day of art making.

LYNDON HOUSE ARTS CENTER (2)

Fall 2024 Steamroller Printmaking Event


Watch the front entrance of the Arts Center turn into a big outdoor printing press!  We will be pulling 4-foot prints out from under a 5-ton construction machine.

 

Registered participants were be busy in the studios, carving the 4-foot blocks to create their own relief image to print.  Carving took place on Saturday, October 14 and 21.  Additional carving time if needed is available throughout these two weeks of October. 

 

On Saturday, October 28 all joined as we inked the relief blocks and drove the steamroller over them to print large-scale images on paper and fabric.  All enjoyed the magic of printmaking with a steamroller!

January 2024 Ceramic bowls for the Food Bank’s Empty Bowl fundraiser and event.

Join ceramist Amanda Jane Crouse on Saturdays in January to throw a bowl, build a bowl, really any vessel to hold soup!  Any and all experience welcomed.  Registration appreciated but room for drop in! Our goal is 50 bowls from the Arts Center to go to the Food Bank event slated for February 2024.

Community ceramic bowl making event

“Our vision for the 2024 event is not just to present an empty vessel for folks to take home, but for it to be a reminder that we each have a part to play in building a stronger Northeast Georgia – and, just like food security and compassion for our neighbors, art is also a hallmark of a thriving community.” – Jana Hartwell, Food Bank Manager of Donor Experience

Once our beautiful bowl make it to the Empty Bowl event, each artist/maker would be able to mark their donation by having a small business card size note inside each bowl that reads, “This was made by YOUR NAME, artist from Lyndon House Arts Center.”  

NEW - We made 51 ceramic bowls for the Food Bank!
