            WEST MAIN ARTISTS CO-OP        


Upcoming Workshops

All workshops will be hosted at the West Main Artists Co-op.  Get Directions

Our Co-op studios, galleries and workshop rooms are all located in a wonderful old church building constructed prior to the 1960's. As such, there are several remnants of its period construction and previous use throughout the building. Unfortunately, this includes the building standards of the time which now prevents our facility from meeting all of today's construction standards including American Disability Act standards. 

While we strive to provide reasonable access for all individuals to our public areas, services and activities, the resources of our small non-profit organization simply cannot support the significant reconstruction necessary to provide total compliance with today's ADA standards. Consequently, there are areas of our facility that may present an accessibility challenge to some and an unavoidable barrier to others. This includes the primary workshop room and artist studios that are located upstairs. 

Because of this we ask anyone signing up for a workshop to please indicate if handicapped access is required, which will allow us to contact you and discuss if, and how we can best meet your needs, including the potential of relocating a workshop to another location.

If handicapped access is required, we encourage you to contact us at workshops@westmainartists.org prior to registering for a workshop.
