SUNDAY August 19, 9-4pm Spoon Carving Workshop with Alex Forbes and her Wonder Wagon traveling studio. If interested please contact me ASAP - Diane Gayer at firstname.lastname@example.org
This one-day workshop leads participants through the creation of their own cooking / serving ladle out of cherry, maple, mahogany or other hardwood. Starting with a conversation about design and use, participants will choose wood and begin designing and shaping their spatula. You will be using a band saw to cut out the initial shape and then using a number of hand carving and shaping tools including gouges, spoke shaves and rasps. Then carvers will shape and finish a spatula to a fine polish ready for the kitchen.
This workshop is for anyone hankering to carve a ladle, spoon or spatula and who likes working with their hands. Beginners and experienced carvers welcome. Alex’s workshop can be seen here: http://vimeo.com/84880454
With the heat of the summer, I have started to build a canopy for the entrance. Even if I could use shade at the front doors now it will still be useful whenever it gets up. With luck and good (read cooler) weather it might be up for the next ART OPENING on Aug 31. Also getting John Marius to make metal brackets for it - just like he did for the front benches.
Award-winning wood artist Jericho, VT Russ Fellows and well-known Philadelphia painter Emily Brown in exhibit July 20 - August 26, 2018.
SPIRIT OF PLACE is our first show of 2018. It is about the feeling we find when we are grounded in place, in knowledge of where we are, yet connected to the energetic space around us, the sky, the lake, and the beauty of being.
