Winter Workspace Workshop: Hybrid Objects–Amulets, Talismans & Curiosities


Glyndor Gallery & Ecology Building

Register for this event

Explore the history of amulets, talismans, and curiosities found in Wunderkammern (or cabinets of curiosities) with Winter Workspace artist Alisha Wessler. Focus on objects that blur the boundaries between artificialia and naturalia. Using your own concoction of personal objects brought from home and natural elements gathered from Wave Hill, learn sculptural techniques to create your own hybrid object of wonder.  All workshops with Winter Workspace artists begin in their Glyndor Gallery studios with an introduction to their creative process. Unless otherwise noted, art materials are provided. Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult.

$15/$5 Wave Hill Member per session. Registration recommended, starting November 12, online or at the Perkins Visitor Center.
