All our workshops are designed to offer you high-quality instruction and information in a relaxed and friendly setting. Ideas can be discussed and projects undertaken gradually at the pace of the student. Small group sizes and an informal atmosphere mean that you can learn from practice, observation, and discussion with other students. Workshops are held in our shop’s studio space, unless otherwise specified. Check back often for event dates and schedules. WE ARE 1976 loves to collaborate with artists, schools, art clubs, and other organizations for workshops. Please contact us for more information.

red seaweeds. We will be marbling various papers for use as bookmarks, greeting cards,
gift tags, wrapping papers, and a thousand other possibilities. We'll also be trying our hands
at marbling different fabrics. All supplies will be included, but be sure to wear some studio
clothes or bring an apron.
