Given the interest in New England's autumn weather and colors, we are hosting two weekend sessions of our getaway this time. The theme will be Houses. More to come on that later.
Additionally each weekend features a guest artist.
The first weekend is September 18-21. Loretta Marvel of Pomegranates and Paper will share some of her techniques for sketching and watercolor painting.
And the second is September 25-28. Nina Bagley of Ornamental will share some of her techniques for jewelry design and mixed media.
Here's the agenda.
*12 guests arrive on Thursday afternoon to Meleen's side-by-side vintage farmhouses in southern Vermont. Come by car or fly in and out of Albany airport (an hour away). We provide pick up and drop off within a window of time. (Details on that after we confirm your spot.)
*Thursday night cocktails on the porch, Meleen's home-cooked welcome dinner, guest artist presentations and craft room lights on until someone turns them off.
*Friday and Saturday: Home-cooked breakfast on the porch or in the great room. Art and crafting begins after breakfast. Delicious, seasonal sit-down lunch. The afternoon offers time to adventure locally or continue making. We generally visit Tammy's Wing and A Prayer farm at some point. Porch drinks and dinner. Another pie or two. Crafting lights on until ....
*Sunday: Last breakfast and pack up for heading home.
Here is a recap of last year's fall weekend.
