Make Night: Scents of the Medieval Era

***Registration for this program is full. To have your name added to the waiting list, please email You might also be interested in any of our other Make Nights.***

Learn about the sacred, medical, and domestic applications of scent in the medieval era, and blend your own medieval “scentscape” as a perfume or home fragrance. California-based artist Brian Goeltzenleuchter will guide you in a hands-on, nose-on exploration of popular medieval scents as part of his larger project Sillage, which makes its East Coast debut at the Walters on December 4.

Inspired by the special exhibition A Feast for the Senses.

Make Night is an evening blending good wine and craft beer, great company, and fantastic art-making experiences led by local creative minds. Each workshop begins with a free drink and a visit to the galleries. Advance registration required.
