Miniature Making with Rachel Grobstein

Thu, Sep 16, 2021

Join us in MAD’s newly reopened classroom for an in-person, art-making experience inspired by The Fisher Dollhouse: A Venetian Palazzo in Miniature. 2019 MAD artist-in-residence Rachel Grobstein will facilitate a one-hour workshop where participants will learn techniques for transforming clay and paint into miniature food, creating small-scale still lifes, and acquire the skills to continue making their own tiny projects at home. We invite you to arrive early and enjoy free admission to the museum before the event.

This workshop is offered in accordance with the museum’s safe social-distancing practices and space is limited. However, the event will also be livestreamed and participants who cannot attend in person can join remotely.

MAD will provide all the necessary materials for the in-person workshop; online participants will need the following materials:
