THE COCOON IS IN THE
PROCESS OF RELOCATING.
A SPACE TO CREATE
Members will have full access to their equipment needs. Yearly members may be granted 24/7 access & unlimited use after taking a safety training course.
Large-scale, project accommodations currently available by request.
Work space, small tools, & sketchbook walls available first come first serve to our members.
Workshop schedule & events will be posted online & in-studio.
Non-members are welcome & encouraged to hang out or create, however access to equipment is for members & workshop use only.
Workshops led by local artists will be available for a variety of techniques, styles & mediums. Art workshops will be offered at 3 levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Intermediate and Advanced classes will be by reserved seating only, with prices varying based on required materials, equipment and time. Beginner level classes will be free to the public, to maintain a high level of accessibility and to inspire people to try new mediums & creative processes.
These workshops will allow an opportunity for artists and community members alike to learn and grow together, while offering local professional artists a way to earn income for their expertise and time as instructors, encouraging a collaborative communal mentality. While our team and partners will offer regularly-scheduled workshops, we will also offer local and visiting artists the freedom to design workshops around their needs and interests, sharing space and offering the support needed for specialty workshops or discussion series.
Brand the Moth offers accessible programming for public arts and art education. We strive to support artists of all career levels, disciplines and interests, while inviting the community into the process. The Cocoon offers a safe space to ask questions, develop skills, seek resources and of course to create and inspire.
Brand the Moth is expanding our reach with each mural and each project as we work to make The Arts accessible, creating a creative hub for our city’s artists. We are so excited to share it all with our community. We are currently seeking donations & support to continue our programming and expand our outreach through The Cocoon.
