After carefully considering the rapidly changing situation in New York City around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) The General Society public lecture programs are currently on “hold” until we are instructed otherwise by the State and/or City of New York.


Now in its tenth season, the Artisan Lecture Series pays tribute to the art of craftsmanship by featuring master artisans who lecture about the intricacies of their specialized crafts. The Artisan Lecture Series promotes the work and art of skilled craftsmen to assist in ensuring their unique knowledge is understood and carried forth for future generations.  


This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
