Wheelhouse Studios - Wisconsin Union
Wheelhouse Studios provides hands-on, multi-layered engagement opportunities in the arts, including ceramics, photography, drawing, painting and more. Formerly called Wisconsin Union Mini Courses and the Wisconsin Union Craftshop, Wheelhouse Studios provides non-credit art courses, free art events, open studio access and group events that are hands-on and skill-based. The idea of an open studio arts facility in a student union originated here at UW-Madison. The "Union Workshop" opened in 1930, when Sally Marshall, a senior at the UW proposed such a facility in her senior thesis. The concept has spread to many other campus union facilities around the world.
