You wouldn’t know it’s May here in southeastern New England lately – very cool today. But the calendar says May 16th, which means in a few weeks, (3 1/2) several of us will be running around like the proverbial chickens with their heads cut off, getting ready for Greenwood Fest 2016. We’ve never done this before, and it sure has been a learning experience! One thing we’ve learned – get on the waiting list. The event sold out quickly, but that was a long time ago (January) – and for several folks life has intervened, & they have had to give up their seats. That was good news for those on the waiting list. Paula told me today that there’s 2 new slots open now.
So if you’ve been wishing you could have made it, you still can. Shift your schedule and head to Plymouth June 10-12. This page in the link says 5 slots, but that’s out of date now. There’s 2. http://www.plymouthcraft.org/?page_id=2272
While you’re at it, extend your stay and take in Jogge’s class after the main event. The distaff is just the vehicle for practicing the cuts and vocabulary of patterns and shapes. This is Jogge’s only US class this year – and we have 2 spaces left. Somehow I’m going to try to be in 2 places at once during this 2-day class -like that girl in Harry Potter. I’ll check with my kids, maybe they can help me. Otherwise, I’ll be there when I can, because I always learn a lot when I’m with Jogge – his work is like nobody else’s. http://www.plymouthcraft.org/?tribe_events=distaff-the-passion-of-carving-with-jogge-sundqvist
