Crafts in the Meadow stands out as an outing worth taking on October 16th and 17th for sure.
With a new live wood fired pottery demonstration during show hours, spectators will see firsthand why this ancient form of Japanese firing has captivated potters through the ages as this dramatic process unfolds.
Loading the kiln with over 100 pots takes dedication and precision. The kiln reaches temperatures of over 3000 degrees using wood as the only fuel.
Skillfully feeding the fire to increase and hold the temperature while controlling the firing for desired results takes years of experience.
Nate Willever, Joanne Sutkin and Shinobu Habauchi will be leading the firing and have finished work for purchase and viewing on site. A talk with Nate, who runs the regular firings at Tyler about his passion for “wild” clay, is sure to be enlightening when he takes a break from demonstrating.
Sculptors Row and other live art demonstrations along with over 130 Fine Art and Craft exhibitors, exceptional live music, kid’s activities and great food attract attendees of this much anticipated festival annually.
There is nothing like getting to know the artists who are all about sharing their inspirations, creations and skills, then taking home a piece of that experience.
Families will love meeting the miniature horses from Roslin Miniature Horse Rescue, creating fall crafts and listening to some music while munching on kettle corn and other tasty treats.
Insight into how your favorite art is created along with the opportunity support the arts community completes the circle and feeds the soul.
There is something for everyone this year including a new beer garden featuring Warwick Farm Brewing and mediums to explore like jewelry, pottery, wood, glass, sculpture, leather, fine art, fiber, basketry, photography and so much more.
