Shak-er It Up with Suzy Balay

Studio@4 students are invited to shake it up on Thursday afternoons in March with teaching artist Suzy Balay! Through exploring works in the current exhibition Focus on: Shaker Woodenware (Part II), they will learn about the immaculate craftmanship of the Shakers, as well as the idea of creating artwork for function. Then, using cardstock to mimic the lightweight wood used by the Shakers, students will create miniature ladder-back chairs and various Shaker-inspired boxes in the studio.
