PIPE MAKING WORKSHOP, Friday, April 3rd 9am to 4pm Downloadable Class Application HERE
Start off your visit to TAPS by making your own pipe at our pipe making workshop hosted by Liberty Arts Sculpture Studio, 918 Pearl St., Durham, NC, and sponsored by Vermont Freehand. Taught by local artisan pipe makers David S. Huber, of DSH Pipes, and John Inge of Inge Pipes, the workshop will focus on the process of pipe making from start to finish. Experience working hands-on with common tools of the trade, including a professional grade sand blasting system. You will receive instruction and guidance from David and John every step of the way. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a pipe of your own creation! During lunch, tour the fabrication facility at Liberty Arts and meet the artists that make up this vibrant Durham community.
Fee includes pipe kit and all necessary supplies, light breakfast, and lunch.
