North Park Art

Maker Workshops

NorthParkArt.org presents Makers Weekend, a time to unleash your creativity, fulfill your curiosity and conquer inertia!

Are you seeking the perfect Instagram shot or a made-to-order Mothers Day present? On Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22, 2018, North Park artisans will help you create wonderful gifts, souvenirs and oddball objects by whittling wood, sculpting cardboard, fashioning a floral treasure, knitting yarn bombs and turning pulp to paper. Register for one or more workshops today.

North Park Art.org was created by North Park neighbors to enhance a positive, fun and exciting vibe on Bryn Mawr and adjacent streets. We want Chicagoans to know of and experience our neighborhood’s abundant talent, charms and potential.

Register for Makers Weekend and prepare for FUN.
