Spring Open House


The Brookfield Craft Center’s 8 studios will be open for demonstrations and showcase learning opportunities and commitment to fine crafts in Brookfield.

On May 18th, 2019 from 12-5 pm, art enthusiasts can visit northwestern Connecticut’s historic Brookfield Craft Center (BCC) to explore over a dozen fine crafts and meet artists on the faculty.  From blacksmithing, ceramics, jewelry-making, fiber arts, and woodturning to the newly refurbished Center for Modern Craft, visitors can view demonstrations of crafting techniques, learn about upcoming programs and classes, walk through our gallery and view our Faculty Exhibition, and visit our shop to purchase handcrafted works.

“Our open house is a great opportunity for the community to see how enjoyable and accessible our programs are here at the Center,” said Howard Lasser, Executive Director of the BCC.  “With a talented faculty of over two dozen instructor artists and a continuously changing lineup of learning opportunities, we have something for everyone.”

The award-winning artists at the BCC look forward to sharing their skills and details of programs directly with prospective students.  “There are so many learning opportunities here at the Center,” said blacksmith teacher Chris Doherty. “Open House is a fun opportunity for us to demonstrate what students can learn and experience, and answer questions about the types of things we cover.  There’s a class for everyone!”
