The German Village Society and European Papers present a wide variety of art workshops, including the Design Your Own Monogram class ($54), where students learn how to manipulate typographic forms to create their own custom monograms. During the Miniature Soldered Book class ($49), students use copper or brass, a color transfer, wire binding, and metal clasps to assemble a miniature book that they can wear as a pendant.

German Village Society

The German Village Society works to preserve its nearly 200-year-old historic neighborhood through education, community, and events. The nonprofit association partners with organizations such as European Papers and the Actors’ Theatre of Columbus to promote the arts, all the while funding preservation efforts through memberships and tours. As the oldest historic tour on the national register, the German Village Society's Annual Haus und Garten Tour sends feet pattering across 233 acres of historic landmarks, enchanting gardens, and award-winning restorations every summer. Tour-takers can meander along the route at their own pace, stopping to explore the shops and eateries in the marketplatz or to peek into classic abodes, which homeowners have transformed into chic, opulent spaces ideal for modern living or showcasing the latest trends in wool socks for coffee tables.

German Village Society

As the oldest historic tour on the national register, the German Village Society's Annual Haus und Garten Tour sends feet pattering across 233 acres of historic landmarks, enchanting gardens, and award-winning restorations. A year ago, the daylong celebration drew a total of more than 6,000 visitors, and this year, an even larger crowd is expected to be on hand to ogle and coax autographs from the 13 homes and gardens scheduled for display.

Tour-takers can meander along the route at their own pace, stopping to explore the shops and eateries in the marketplatz or to peek into classic abodes, which homeowners have transformed into chic, opulent spaces ideal for modern living or showcasing the latest trends in wool socks for coffee tables. In addition to the lineup of architectural stars, the tour will also be stocked with various live performances, including a rendition of The Scarlet Pimpernel in Schiller Park at 2 p.m.

It's great to tour the houses! But it's overpriced. Glad I had the Groupon.

I took a class on old book repair there taught by Lisa Omer of European Papers. Lisa is a great instructor; it was very interesting and the 4 hours flew by! She has lots of nifty unique items for sale during her workshops, too. She's only there when teaching workshops but you can google European Papers & see her many types of interesting workshops and buy items from her website.
