Come tour the Sanctuary Arts sculpture gardens, purchase gifts at our Arts & Crafts Fair and create your own iron tile from scratch!

From 11 – 1, carve into our tile sand molds for a fee of $15 per mold. All molds must be completed by 1pm. Hang out for a visual treat as Green Foundry members pour iron into your own scratch sand molds. When they cool off, tiles will be broken out of the molds and cleaned up. You are ready to take your tiles home to adorn your abode! Process is completed by 4 pm and is family friendly. All proceeds will benefit Sanctuary Arts’ new scholarship program.

The grounds will be open, including the formal sculpture garden designed and planted by artist Judy Andrews.

For something
completely different, painter Courtney Lampert offers Free Form Embroidery (SA 15) for 3 weekends in June and July. This class is suitable for both young folks (10 and up) and adults. Embroidery is having quite a moment in fashion right now, with a growing number of artists and designers posting pictures of their delicate work on social media. The techniques they use tend to be traditional – with embroidery hoops and crewel needles a common feature – but the subject matter is often anything but. Come explore your own creative imagery with a truly portable medium!

Sean Kramer offers a number of 4 week classes, including Fresco Painting (SA 9), Metal Leafing: Basic Techniques (SA 10) and Contemplative Art Practices (SA 11).

Sean is a wonderful instructor in rather arcane art practices, beginning his classes with yoga stretches and meditation. He has a font of knowledge that he shares in clear, step by step ways. I’ve taken most of his classes and highly recommend them.

Summer classes and workshops all begin NOW!
It’s not too late to sign up!
