Artist Workshop: Judit Kollo - Music of the Winds: Sculpture Embraces Horticulture
The coast of New England provides sometimes gentle, sometimes strong ocean winds. But wind is more than just a natural phenomenon. It is one of the greatest song writers of all times and to hear its songs we only need to know how to listen.
Join artist Judit Kollo as she teaches us how to appreciate the Music of the Wind. Students will make wind chimes and wind instruments by combining pre-fired pottery and ceramics beads with shells found on the beach. As they put their chimes together, students will gain insight into the structural mechanism of the wind instruments, learning to tune it to their own taste and thus come up their personal translation of wind into gentle melodies.
This workshop will take place in an outdoor studio space on the grounds.

Not only did the daffodils come through for us but other beauties have joined the party too, including a few very early tulips. And just […]
Fresh air and exercise

This past week was just what the doctor ordered. Sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s made being up and out absolutely irresistible — for us and the spring flowers we’ve been waiting so (im)patiently for. Everything that, as of last week, still seemed tightly budded and winter-stunted is suddenly busting to bloom. The daffodils have started opening and, depending […]

I don’t want you to get too excited by the title of this post. Signs of spring are popping out, bit by bit, but we’re not seeing many flowers yet. We’re still waiting for the daffodils to make an appearance. That said, feel free to do a little dance if you want to (I do) because it won’t […]
