Sketching in the Wild: Winter Day Trip

March 19, 2023

Connect with Nature in a new way on a winter walk on the Tonahutu Trail. We will match colors with colored pencils and explore what we see with simple shapes and lines, as well as quick notes of the piles of snow, animals, trees, rocks or whatever we find along the way. Then we’ll head inside for hot cocoa!

Primitive Rug Hooking with Keith Kemmer

“Everything New is Old again”
May 18 — 21, 2023

Plan to learn and try new techniques in this workshop and see how they can impact the overall primitive look. Everything from “raggedy” Hit’n Miss to “higgley-piggley” to halo/echo and puddled styles. We’ll all have fun learning something new to make your rugs look old.

Please Note: We will follow all potential COVID restrictions regarding vaccines, masks and social distancing according to Grand County guidance and local positivity rates.
