What a fun week! We made paper lanterns, checked out some of the local art studios and participated in a craft event.
In preparation for an upcoming Lantern Festival Kyle and I attended a paper lantern workshop at Small Pond Arts earlier in the week. Ourselves, along with five others, were instructed by studio owners Krista and Mile on how to make lanterns using bamboo, tissue paper and a candle. Nell Casson and I built a medium sized jellyfish lantern, while Kyle and Mile joined forces and started building a huge fish lantern.
Later in the week I took the three residents around to a couple of the studios on the PEC Studio Tour. The rainy weather left us only seeing a few studios around Wellington and Bloomfield. The best parts of this trip were stopping into one of my favorite pottery studio in Wellington and a visit to the Oeno Gallery.
During the weekend Kyle and I set-up a craft sale table outside Mobius on the main street of Picton. Although it was rainy, windy and cold we still had fun handing out on the main street, visiting with people and selling our goods.
On Saturday afternoon I left our craft table early so I could attended Porchfest in Belleville, where my two friends Laura Todd and Sean Bokenkamp were playing their first show as Caesar Shift.
My weekend closed with a short trip to the Kaleidoscope craft sale held at Fields on West Lake. I enjoyed the booth set-up of Michelle Morrissey’s Drifter Studios, the presentation really suited the nature of the work.
