Or does the breath-taking beauty inspire average folks to become more creative?
But it was fun meeting, watching and interacting with the local artists.
|This is Kathleen from The Raven Press Gallery.|
She is demonstrating how she engraves on wood. The detail is teeny tiny.
|Printing is done on this hand press in her gallery.|
Her pieces are framed and cover every wall.
|Showing off some of Jennifer's work.|
|Not sure how she gets anything done with this view.|
|A colorful quilt hangs in their foyer.|
|Meet Andrea. She is operating a bicycle pedal-powered loom.|
She let us hop on. Clickety clack, clickety clack, we made a red and gray blanket.
|There is a fine art to getting all the threads in place. Very time consuming.|
|Say hi to Linda. We stopped in front of her gift shop and heard a voice from the back of a nearby barn holler, "Wanna watch? Or should I clean up and open the shop?" We totally wanted to watch.|
|All done. Wool is wrapped up and added to the bin.|
Time to head over to the gift shop where she makes and sells paintings, jams,
knitted baby items, crocheted scarves, wallhangings, magnets, cards and more.
