Workshop at the Wayside Inn

October 26th through the28th was the Country Folk Art Festival in Marlborough where I introduced the next class to be at the Wayside Inn. On Saturday January 12th, the small decorative pine stool will be the project. Sunday, January 13th, will be the receipt box. I noticed that most were interested in the pine stool, so as a result there may be two days for the pine stool and I will schedule the receipt box later.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn the painting and finishing of working in wood.
The class starts at 9:30 am until 4:30pm spending a memorable day at the Wayside Inn enjoying this very special time in painting. There are muffins and coffee served by the fireplace in the morning with a five course luncheon served in the old kitchen at noon.
The cost is $185.00 and seating is limited so please call the Inn for more information and your reservation at 1-978-443-1776. Some also make it a weekend by staying in one of ten rooms at the Inn which is an even more enjoyable experience.

See you before you know it...........
