Call to Artists – Artisans in Action

Call to Artists – Artisans in Action

Calling all artists looking to spend an afternoon creating next to an outstanding view, sharing your work and discussing your creative process with people who are truly interested. If this sounds like a perfect combination of work and pleasure, then we invite you to participate in one of our upcoming Artisan in Action events.

This Sunday we kick off our 7th season of monthly pop-up markets and demonstrations. Stuart L. Taylor returns for a 3rd time to demonstrate wood-turning, working with a variety of Nova Scotian trees, and James Brown of Steady Brook Saddlery returns for a fifth visit to share his many tools used for creating and decorating leather products.

All are invited to join us between noon and 4pm to see these artisans in action!
