Welcome back to the Center for Art in Wood! We have missed you!

The Center has expanded its public hours and is now open Wednesday through Sunday, 12—5PM. The Center will also extend its hours on First Fridays.

We continue to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Philadelphia municipality. The Center will continue to provide updates via its website, social media channels, and email correspondence if there is any change in our hours or access.  

There are still safeguards in place to ensure a safe and comfortable visit:

  • Mandatory wearing of masks for staff and for visitors.
  • Social distancing (six feet apart) is still encouraged, especially in the collection area.
  • We have installed a cashless system but will still take cash payments at the register.
  • Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the Center.
  • Additionally, any staff members who report feeling ill are required to quarantine and shelter in place at home. We recommend and require that patrons do the same in order to ensure the safety of everyone.

Whether near or far, you can always visit the Center at theWoodShed.org! This dynamic micro-site and our main website are constantly updated, hosting live talks, studio tours, demonstrations, and much more, on an ongoing basis.   

And the best handmade objects, jewelry, art, and books are always a couple of clicks away at the Center’s online store! https://centerforartinwood.org/store/ 

We wish you continued good health and we look forward to reconnecting at the Center and/or online.  

Be safe and well. We hope to see you soon!
