The Makers Event: Rhode Island Creative Magazine & Mohawk

Date(s) - 06/17/2014
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Rogue Island Kitchen and Bar, Arcade Providence



On Tuesday, June 17th, Mohawk and The Rhode Island Creative Magazine have collaborated to bring you “The Makers Event: An Evening of Inspiration” for creative individuals living and working in the Ocean State.

The event, which is being held at the Rogue Island Local Kitchen restaurant in the newly renovated Providence Arcade, in the heart of the “Creative Capital,” will gather a community of makers and feature works by several local artists and craftspeople.

Rogue Island Local Kitchen & Bar is a full-service restaurant concept that offers menu items inspired by the people, produce, and protein of the State of Rhode Island. Their ingredients and beverages are sourced from farms within 75 miles of Providence. They make an effort to contribute to the strengthening of our local food system by showcasing bountiful agricultural resources through artfully crafted dishes.


Mohawk has taken pride in the art of papermaking for nearly a century. Generations of fine papermakers have honed their craft in their mills in upstate New York, so they are endlessly inspired by the artistry of others and they are proud to support and be a part of a growing movement of makers.

Mohawk are proud to support makers through their Mohawk Maker Quarterly publications, their blog Felt and Wire and through events such as their support of Martha Stewart American Made, and their own Mohawk Maker regional events.

Mohawk is proud to celebrate makers everywhere, and they have begun this new series to celebrate and highlight their passions. Rhode Island was selected to be among of many other states in this series and have reached out to Rhode Island Creative Magazine to collaborate and host this event to do just that!
