Create your own graffiti-style masterpiece at the Carrie Blast Furnaces!
Join Rivers of Steel master urban artist Shane Pilster on a tour of the international collection of graffiti murals located at the Carrie Blast Furnaces. Learn about the individual works of art and the overall history and culture of graffiti. After your tour, you’ll have a chance to try it for yourself! The hands-on experience will teach you the basics of aerosol painting and style-writing techniques. Then take home your completed paintings at the end of the workshop.
Graffiti & Style-Writing Workshops are offered once a month, seasonally from June through October.
*Workshops are limited to 15 participants. We highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance as we cannot guarantee tickets will be available for walk-ups.
