Makers at the Hall is a lecture series held at Mechanics’ Hall on the last Wednesday of the month from January to May and September through November. Each talk is presented by a local Maine maker, a master of their craft. In an inviting and relaxed atmosphere, Mechanics’ Hall members and friends learn about a specific discipline and the triumphs and challenges of the speaker’s engagement with their medium. Past speakers have been Nick and David Wallace of Wallace Pipe Organs, Pandora LaCasse, Pilar Nadal of Pickwick Press, and Jonathan Cooper Luthier among many more. This is the program’s third year. It is administered by the Mechanics’ Hall programming committee and funded by membership donations. We are currently looking for sponsors as well as volunteers for the 2019 season. Please email us at email@example.com.
Upcoming Speaker: John Sundling
On Wednesday, April 24th, we are excited to welcome John Sundling, owner of the Munjoy Hill based client-driven design firm, houseplant store and floral studio called Plant Office. Not your average flower shop, it is built on the premise that art design, collaboration and education are powerful tools for shopping and supporting the community around us. John really enjoys exploring the intersections of floral artistry, set design, and installation art. He is especially excited to share his interest in ephemeralities: the specifics of time, place, and chance.
FREE for MCMA members, $5 general admission. 7:00PM. Elevator access to second floor library.
