Come to the shop on the hill and meet Annetta, who is joining us all the way from Beloit, Wisconsin. We are thrilled to have her here to teach, Saturday/Sunday, May 18 and 19, 2019. Annetta is our Featured Artist for 2019 and she brings a new perspective to the art. What a great time to travel up here. Everything will be in bloom and it will be time to relax on the deck with your friends and do some wonderful weaving projects.
Annetta brings her many years of design, creativity and skill to share with you. She travels the country teaching her unique and colorful art and we’re thrilled she chose us in New Hampshire as part of her tour for this year. On each day you will have several choices of baskets but she is also offering a special Surprise class to you. There will be a mini weaving Surprise project on Saturday evening that will include pizza. Feel free to join us for this Surprise class, even if you didn’t make it to class during the day.
