Contemporary Craft Workshops

Contemporary Craft is partnering with Construction Junction to present a series of artist-led, hands-on art workshops focused on creative reuse that will be offered at Construction Junction (214 N Lexington Street) on the 2nd Saturday of each month. The first workshop from the CC/CJ Partnership Program is one of our most popular workshops – Tin Can Collage led by West Virginia artist Artist Robert Villamagna on Saturday, July 13! Robert is passionate about working with found materials, he is especially attracted to those items that show use, wear and even some rust. He works to give that discarded piece of metal, or that old photograph, a new life, a different life, and it becomes part of my creative process. Register for this workshop at and transform metal containers into a cool piece of artwork!
