Squam Art Workshops Taproot Gathering
September 11 – 15, 2013
The classes for this exceptional retreat are intended to support and nurture your homelife. If you are someone who savors organic, locally harvested meals, you will be delighted to find how simple it is to make your own cheese and butter, as well as gain skills to tap on the vast potential of botanicals in your own backyard for health and healing. We will be hosting visits to a number of working farms, learning how to create stunning bouquets from fresh field flowers and teaching the basics of simple fermentation.
But there are so many other fabulous offerings on hand that will have you carving spoons, creating darling soft sculptures, dyeing yarn with foraged materials, making your own clothes, exploring your writing voice and taking your photography to the next level. For more information, vist the Taproot Gathering page.
Squam Art Fair
Saturday, June 9th
7:30 – 10:00pm
at Rockywold-Deephaven Camps
The Squam Art Fair is open to all and we would love for you to help spread the word in your community. This year’s vendors will be bringing beautiful yarns, ceramics, clothing, jewelry, hand-made soaps, wooden crafts, shoes, artwork, books, knitted goods, bags/purses, and so much more.
In addition to all the fabulous shopping, the night will include a fabulous raffle overloaded with an abondanza of items that the lucky winners will be able to share with friends and family.
But most of all– this is such a special gathering of wonderful, spirit-filled people as well as a fun night of extraordinary handmade goods– the lovely lakeside setting is just icing on the cupcake. And, no matter how marvelous it is, it will be even more so if you are with us!o please do join us, we would love to see you there!
There is a lovely spirit of connection and collaboration that has emerged from the SAW gatherings at Rockywold-Deephaven Camps. However, the journal is not about the workshops themselves. Rather, it is an exploration of the journeys we take, how we can find friendship in the most unexpected places, and the restorative power of natural beauty– but above all, it is about what happens when you honor your creativity.
The journal is filled with spectacular imagery from beloved photographers including Denise Andrade, Jen Gray, Susannah Conway, Jeanine Caron, and Béatrice Peltre, among many others. You can look forward to 120 pages of terrific essays and wide ranging conversations about navigating the ups and downs of life with humor, grace, or when all else fails, retail therapy. There’s a pop quiz, a kicky craft project, home tours, and so much more including an actual journal within the book itself.
Our hope for this 8″ x 8″ volume is that it will easily tuck into your bag and accompany you everywhere… on the subway, in the cab, on the train, in the airport, on holiday, etc. We hope it fills your day with inspiration, fresh perspective and belly laughs. We trust you’re going to like it very much as we created it just for you.
