Kristin Williams has spent a lifetime playing with yarn, glitter, clay, rubber stamps, paper, paints and glue. She was lucky to have an incredibly talented craftswoman for a mother who saw great value in children’s art and craft classes. That planted a seed for lifelong learning and craft supply hoarding. Collage using ephemera and acrylic paints is Kristin’s current fascination and the basis for her artwork. A Knoxville, Tennessee native, she moved to Paducah in 1996 after which she fell in love and put down roots.

“Ephemera Paducah is a culmination of years and years (did I mention years?) of dreaming about a creative venture and venue. A milestone birthday in June 2012 prompted action. Life is short! Buh-bye Strategic Planning, Meeting Facilitation, and Economic Development and Helllloooo Ephemera Paducah!”

With her background in Chamber of Commerce work and Southern Roots, hospitality comes naturally for Kristin. She wants you to make great art, have a wonderful time, and not stress during your visit to Ephemera Paducah.

“The immersion in a day of art, the quality of the instructors, the great people you’ll met along the way, and the environment of appreciation and support make for a wonderful friends’ trip,” Kristin says. “I hope everyone leaves Ephemera Paducah learning new skills and energized.”

About Ephemera Paducah

Everyday Artist

The workshops we host and national art instructors whom we invite to teach at Ephemera Paducah are selected very intentionally. It is our desire to connect creative people to one another, first class instruction, and the media they love. While our studio space can comfortably hold up to 35 students, we also offer smaller classes for those seeking an intimate creative setting. For at least 8 people, we love hosting Girls’ Night Out events and crafting parties for guests and their friends.

We like to pamper you while you are here. Chocolate is considered an Art Supply! For day-long classes, we pick up lunch from one of our fantastic local restaurants. As one of our guests noted in a review, “No creepy fast food dead fries! Just scrumptious collections of food for your crafty soul!”

In addition to the studio and workshop space, Ephemera Paducah is also home to a retail shop filled with a variety of art supplies with brands like StencilGirl, Dina Wakley’s paints & mediums, Ken Oliver’s Colorburst and so much more.

Our studio and workshop space is located in Paducah, Kentucky’s Lower Town Arts District. We are halfway between Nashville and St. Louis on I-24 and less than 2.5 hours from each. Paducah is an easy and creative place to visit. Join us for a class and immerse yourself in the creative offerings that Ephemera Paducah has to offer its guests.
