September is back to school time at the studio!

As the air gets a bit cooler and the sights, smells and sounds of September dance around us, I'm inviting you to come and discover our studio for yourself. 

Sonce starting our popular workshop program this year we've welcomed over a hundred visitors to various workshops, then stopped over the summer for painting high on the scaffolding overhead instead of on easels. 

Now with fresh white ceilings and cream colored beams to reflect even more light into our newly designed workshop area, we're pleased to open our doors again and welcome you in for a whirlwind of creative fun and friendships in The1870 Studio. 

Starting on September 1, 2017 from 4 to 8 pm you can come to our first First Friday Show & Sale, with free admission, special surprises and a peek at some of the 50 different workshops we have happening in September, there really is something for everyone!

Get creative with me. Never stop learning and come and see why The1870 is such a very special place.
