Masters in the Morning was born in the fall of 2015. We offer art classes, workshops, and vacation camps for kids and teens. We operate out of an awesome studio space, Workshop13 , in the town of Ware. Workshop13 is a thriving Cultural Arts and Learning Center which offers a variety of classes to youth and adults. It is also a spectacular venue for concerts and parties. We are so fortunate to have this gem of a place!
I’m Marie Lauderdale, founder of MM. I studied Fashion and Textile design at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago and worked in the fashion industry and in advertising for several years before getting a bug to travel. During my travels I was introduced to the wonderful world of fiber arts and felting. Wow! Did you know you can make your own fabric! How cool is that!
Though I’m most passionate about felting, art in any medium is a big part of my life. I live in the town of Ware, MA with my husband Lew, and two children Cash 10yrs and Willow 8 yrs. I keep very busy homeschooling Cash and Willow and running MM.
There are so many talented professional artists and teachers in our area! I regularly call upon them to teach different mediums that they have mastered.
