The MEM Project offers Jewish art workshops to young adults in the greater Boston area.
Upcoming Jewish Art Workshop Offerings...
a glass etching workshop to create your own seder or matzah plate for Passover
Sunday March 31, 2019
6 pm - 8:30 pm
Host: Riverway Project @ Temple Israel
Why do we include certain items on the seder plate? What if you don't have a seder plate or if there isn't room on yours for everything you'd want to include? Now is your chance to design your own glass seder (or matzah) plate as you connect with other young adults (age 21-45) during this creative workshop. Participants will learn glass etching techniques to create a beautiful plate that can be used in your Passover celebration.
We'll also engage in some learning about the seder plate to help inspire your design. There will be a light dinner included as well. All are welcome--no prior art experience/Jewish learning necessary!
Etched Wine Glasses
a glass etching workshop to create your own glass for Elijah, Miriam, or yourself!
Sunday April 14, 2019

Host: Yisod @ Temple Emanuel
Come learn how to make your own kiddush cup just in time for Passover! Connect with other young adults (ages 21-45) during this creative workshop where you’ll learn glass etching techniques to create a glass for Elijah, Miriam, or yourself!
We’ll also enjoy with one last bagel brunch before Passover and engage in some learning about wine to help inspire your design. All are welcome–no prior art experience/Jewish learning necessary!
