Pat Courtney Gold’s Basketry Classes!

We had a wonderful time hosting Pat Courtney Gold and her sister for two basket weaving classes this past weekend. On Friday, Pat taught a small Wasco Sally Bag class, followed on Saturday with a traditional twined basket class with natural plant fibers.

Students enjoyed close one on one time to develop their baskets and gain an understanding of the materials and techniques. Due to the class’s success, and interest beyond class capacity, we hope to host similar classes in the future!


Paper Puppet Theater Camp – Session One

The first session of Paper Puppet Theater Camp was a success, thanks to the creative minds and artistic talents of the kids involved and our education coordinator, Amy Pollicino.

The kids learned how to write a play and how to perform using the puppets that they made over the course of the week. The end result was “The Dog Who Saved Front Street.”

Session Two is scheduled for August 14-18, so there is still time to sign up!
