David Philpot – Workshops



                                David Philpot Workshops – Inspired and Inspiring 

The intensity and excitement at David Philpot’s workshops are a testimony to the power of art – and to the power of committed, engaged artists who are willing to reach out to  young people. Philpot takes particular pride in his ability to share his artistry and skill with others. For over three decades, Philpot (as he is known) has led workshops in the US, Europe and Africa.

He guides participants – adults and children – in creating decorated mini-staffs, miniature versions of his own artworks, using cardboard tubing, up-cycled jewels and found objects. He has conducted recent workshops in Detroit for Family Day Extravaganza at MOCAD (Museum of Contemporary Design Detroit) and The Detroit Design Festival 2015, on the Detroit River Walk. He is a featured artist each year at the African World Festival, carving staffs for audiences at the fest.
