Workshops › Run a Workshop

We welcome artisans who specialize in creating handcrafted items to teach workshops at our facility. We hold workshops year round.

Our goal is to help people preserve, appreciate, and share our past while rediscovering the pride and pleasure gained from making things themselves – or MIM (“made it myself”).

Forgotten Arts is a place were people from all over the world can come and find pleasure in taking the time to create something of lasting value in an increasingly busy and disposable world.

If you’re someone with a “forgotten” skill and understand what it means to satisfy one’s soul using time-honored techniques, then we’d love to talk to you.
