  • I'm in love with the place! All the experiences we had back there were amazing! We just threw our daughter's birthday party there and all kids loved the workshop, instructor and the place itself! The staff are amazing, very helpful and efficient! Totally recommend!
  • Silvermine Guild Arts Center has been enriching the Fairfield County area for decades - watch the website for the shows available - - although not big this is a lovely place to visit for art on a rainy or snowy day - The classes for Children and ongoing classes for adults in art, etc. are something that all families and couples should sample - - the staff is always good at what they are teaching - -
