Downtown Presbyterian Church artists will be donating their time and supplies for workshops that teach a craft, skill, or artistic technique. Open to the general public, attendees of each workshop can pay a $5 registration fee per workshop to guarantee them a spot in the class, and if able, are asked to make a contribution on the day of the class that will go directly to replacing DPC’s sanctuary carpet. The cost for the new carpet is close to $20,000. Your generosity will help us to continue maintaining our building as the historical worship place and architectural marvel that has been enjoyed by generations of members, friends and visitors.

Demonstrations of each workshop will be held during the Saturday Art Crawl of the previous week. There will be a sign-up sheet there, and we will accept registration fees ($5/spot) during that time. Online registrations will be accepted at http://www.locallymadeinnashville.com/dpc-workshop-registration/.
The workshops themselves will be held every 2nd Sunday of the month, August-December, in the Fellowship Hall at 2pm. There is no cost for the class other than the registration fee, but suggested donations can be made at the time of the workshop – all proceeds go directly to the replacement of DPC’s sanctuary carpet. All materials will be provided.
