Annual Appeal 2022

2022 Annual Appeal




Dear Friends,

Most don’t realize how much time, money, and incredible talent goes into keeping our doors open to stage concerts, open mic’s, poetry readings, music festivals, classes, and art exhibitions. Behind every experience at Workshop13 is a dedicated artist, musician, potter, poet, administrator, and volunteer hard at work.

Nothing makes us happier than seeing smiles on the faces of the many people who have been touched by an experience at Workshop13. We love what we do, but can’t do it without your support.

Our Annual Appeal provides an important source of income to ensure that we can continue to deliver fine arts and cultural programming to our rural communities.

As prices increase everywhere, our priorities right now are to secure funding for:

  1. Heating, electricity, maintenance, website and building improvements, paid staff, and contract workers.
  2. A sliding scale option for all programs, breaking the barriers of accessibility for our low and fixed-income patrons.

We also need Volunteers! If you have time to donate, please email

Donations can be made by clicking the DONATE button, or by check payable to Workshop13, 13 Church St., Ware, MA 01082.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

With gratitude and well wishes, 




We are always in need of volunteers! Can you help with administration tasks, bookkeeping, marketing, staffing the gallery, event set-up, ticket taking, bartending or assisting in art classes?
