Open House Fiber Day at Freedom Makers Studio

The easing of the winter chill and the lengthening days remind me that there is still time to tend to winter creative projects, if I can only find the time!  So, lets make time. This is a gathering of local area spinners, knitters, needle felters and other fiber artists, open to all, to help make this truly a "makers" space. Lets see what yarns we can tell as well as spin! Bring your wheel, your drop spindle, your knitting or other wool and fiber projects (and your own spinning stool please!). Bring a snack to share if you wish.  Email us at FreedomMakersStudio@gmail.com FMI. Thanks!

Freedom Makers Studio is hosting a presentation by Cassandra Lishman of Lammas Ecovillage in the Pembrokeshire Hills of Wales on Sunday Dec. 10 from 2-4 pm at the Studio. Refreshments will be available and the store will be open.

Lammas Ecovillage is a pioneering homesteading community in Wales that developed under the “One Planet Development” scheme that permits and encourages off-grid homesteads on farmland in Wales. Cassie will talk about the origins of the community and how the nine homesteads that are part of the ecovillage work towards self-sufficiency and sustainable livelihoods and building a cohesive community. Cassie is also a willow sculpture artist using many species of willows grown on her homestead. Please come to hear about this unique multi-age community and welcome her to our community of homesteaders, makers and sustainability leaders.

Freedom Makers Studio host Lissa Widoff lived with Cassie at Lammas during the summer of 2014 where she learned about dry stonewalling, cob roundhouses, willow lathe and plaster and how cold and windy it is in June on the Welsh coast.

Freedom Makers Studio is an art gallery and community hub for local Waldo County artists and makers.  Holiday storefront hours are Fridays and Saturdays 12-6 pm and Sundays starting Dec. 10 from 12-4. pm with other times by appointment or chance.
