August 26, 1-4 pm:  Paint a chalkware folk piece

Select your choice of 3 designs, rooster, bird or cat.  Paint a cast plaster piece in the manner of the early 19th century.  Chalkware was an inexpensive decorative item that mirrored the more expensive chinaware pieces.  You can paint in a traditional manner or indulge your whims.  The class will be held in the new barn at Venoge.

September 16, 1-4 pm:  Early Swiss/German Furniture construction

Ever wonder why or how older pieces of furniture seem to last for centuries?  Learn some of the construction techniques our Swiss and German ancestors used to build the antiques we collect today.  Mike McHugh, craftsman and woodworker, will present a talk and demonstration of construction techniques use to make furniture last through the ages.

The class will be held in the new barn at Venoge.
