Brrrrrrrr, Vermont

This week I’m teaching a sculptural bookmaking class for the North Country Studio Workshops at Bennington College in Vermont. Despite the cold temperatures dipping below zero in the evenings, the studios are warm and welcoming. I have eleven industrious students who are working on their carousel books at the moment.

Bennington is a beautiful campus with a mix of traditional New England architecture and some strikingly modern buildings. We are enjoying sumptuous meals of freshly prepared vegetables, main courses, and too-tempting desserts. And the dormatories where we’re housed are light-filled and very comfortable.

Aside from my book class, there are classes running in drawing, metals, sculpture, ceramics, fabric arts, surface design, quilting, basketry and photography. Yoga flow classes led by Tracy Penfield are held morning and afternoon before and after classes. All this makes for a great creative environment with a lot of positive exchange between the participants. The volunteers for North Country Studios who work so hard over a two-year period to make this biennial event possible are to be heartily commended.
