Join us Sunday, July 21 from 1-4 pm for our Summer Open House.
CIF members and studio residents will show off their current works of arts, craftsmanship, design, and innovative projects, many with original work for sale.
Take a guided tour and hear about our expansion plans, participate in live demos and make-and-take stations and mingle with fellow makers over wine and complementary refreshments.
Devon Palmer of Devon Palmer Woodturning will be on hand doing some live demos–stop and watch or for $25, take a mini-lesson to learn to make your own, and walk away with a wood-turned pen–then hop on over to the laser to have it engraved if you like! (You can read more about Devon in his recent Columbus Alive feature.)
Carve your own design into plaster and let instructor Terry Griner show you how to make a pewter casting, take home your own pewter trinket for $5.
Jennifer Deafenbaugh of the Itty-Bitty Studio will debut her interactive “shy” robotic flower kinetic sculpture– if you approach the wall of these servo-motor driven flowers too fast, they’ll startle and shrink, if you approach peacefully, they’ll bloom.
Make your own stunning living terrarium or kokedama (moss ball) with horticulturalist Kumiko Matsura ($25) with a variety of plants, decorative rocks and artistic accents with a lovely glass container included.
