We hope you’ll join us for the eighth year of this hands-on, skill-building event!  Wear clothes to play in and pack your water bottle.

Before you come, take a look at the schedule and see what interests you!  Some of the workshops can help support projects you might already have at home, so consider bringing your knitting project, a small electronic item in need of repair, any knives that need sharpening, or your ukulele for participating in a jam session.  You can also prepare a labeled item for the potluck lunch, and maybe pick something from your garden or grab something from your pantry to add to a pot of stone soup.  Plants for the plant swap are welcome as well.

While you’re here, enjoy a variety of hands-on workshops, including old favorites like building a bluebird box and treadle sewing, as well as some new selections like sashiko embroidery and building a tiny house on a trailer.

We’re sure you’ll leave with some new skills and knowledge, a new project completed or a new plant for your garden, and a newfound appreciation for the sharing of hands-on learning and inspiration for your summer projects.
