Today is a beautiful summer day. Sunny, warm. The university near me is graduating the class of 2022 and joy is in the air.
We will all have a healthy respect for the COVID virus (and all viruses from now on!. But we are ready to break out of its stranglehold on life. As the virus becomes more common, but less deadly, we are ready to join each other and laugh and care, and share. No more false starts like last summer's start.
The Eastwood School Florida sessions have been canceled five times. We are ready to get our groove on. We are holding classes through the summer in our studio/shop in North Kingstown, RI. Details are on the "News from the Seaside" page. We are keeping the groups small, but we are together!!!
We also welcome you to visit us to shop and share. We try to keep some standard business hours, but we are flexible. Call us to be sure we are there if you are coming from a distance.
BE SURE to visit on June 4, 2 weeks from now, when we will turn our space into a little gallery of finished works. The whole historic mill where we share space is full of 40 studios which will be open to tour. The potters, painters, weavers, jewelers, metalsmiths, spinners, fiber artists, glass artisans, sculptors, and writers will invite you into their inner sanctum where the magic happens. There will be demonstrations, discussions, and displays of their works for purchase.
The Mill at Shady Lea is a historic textile mill built in 1820. Lots of stories are here, even ghost stories. We will share some with you when you visit!
