MakeArt Lab: Proxistant Pop-up Galleries with Tammie Knight

March 11, 2023 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Museum of Craft and Design

Deep dive into the exhibitions with artist-led workshops! MakeArt Labs are a unique opportunity to get hands-on artistic guidance directly from exhibition-featured artists, designers, and experts.

Join MCD and local designer, Tammie Knight, for an afternoon of creative design– in miniature!

In this MakeArt workshop, each participant will conceptualize and create their own dynamic pop-up art gallery. Taking inspiration from MCD’s current exhibition Proxistant Vision, pop-up galleries become a means of viewing an entire space–get close up as though a visitor enjoying the miniature exhibition, or observe from afar as an aerial witness.

Participants will use an array of artistic mediums and materials to craft a miniature art series and curate the layout of the artwork. When ready to design and install a whole new show, these pop-up galleries are modular for countless more tiny exhibitions.

Tips, tricks, and best practices will be shared for crafting “finished” spaces within the allotted 3 hours.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided. Ages 12 and up are welcome with an adult accompaniment.

Purchase Tickets
Tickets: $40 for General Admission, $35 for Students and Seniors, and $25 for MCD Members.


Tammie Knight is a miniaturist, designer, and Art Basel 2022 featured artist with expertise in creating 1:12 scale structures from concept to construction. A graduate of Parsons School of Design, she incorporates this background into the aesthetic of her miniature projects. Miniatures are the medium through which she crafts narratives that breathe life into the scenes she creates to tell stories, real and imagined. Throughout her miniature-making career, Tammie has produced over 1,500 miniature projects for clients, family, and friends, and she has custom-built and decorated more than three dozen finished dollhouses.
