Artisan’s Asylum proudly presents Maggie Schpak.

Maggie is an emeritus jeweler and prop maker, and we all know her work—it’s in every episode of Star Trek the series, and features in all the Star Trek movies, as well as through other legendary film and television, the international runway, in museum exhibits, and adorning some high-profile rock stars.

Maggie will be making a rare public appearance in Boston, to tell her stories and share her knowledge in the fascinating TV and movie prop-making craft. The talk will be followed by a Reception held at Artisan’s Asylum, where guests will be invited to have nibbles and cocktails at a replica of Quark’s Bar, and Star Trek Collectibles will be raffled!

Star Trek continues to be a powerful cultural agent, anchored around the premise of a ‘Prime Directive’, it projects the possibility of compassion in an integrated, peace oriented collaborative multiverse. Via its ornament, images, and ideology, we are inspired to look way beyond. Schpak’s appearance could not be more timely. Join us for this unique event, celebrating a fascinating life and career while supporting our beloved maker space Artisan’s Asylum!
