Workshop: Painted Slate

February 26, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

In this in-person creative workshop, we will hand paint pieces of slate roofing using acrylic paints. Salvaged from SCHS’ very own Brouwer House in the Stockade, these vintage slate tiles protected one of Schenectady’s oldest homes for a century! Each tile has its own unique, natural age and character. Your bespoke piece can be used as a personalized gift, a decorative art piece at home or in the garden, or even as an address plaque or placemat. This workshop is designed for all skill levels- just bring your own creative spirit. Limited to 8 people, tickets are $40.
