We're slowly getting back into the swing of things here in San Francisco, but wanted to take a moment to share a bit about our fantastic escape to New Hampshire last week. We were honored to be teaching at Squam Art Workshops, which is held at the Rockywold-Deephaven Camp on Squam Lake. It's impossible to describe in pictures and words what a magnificent experience it was to spend 5 days in such a beautiful, peaceful, and inspiring setting. But oh well....we'll give it a shot.
We had Saturday off and spent the morning roaming the shady wooded paths between cabins and poking our heads into all the other amazing classes that were being offered (knitting, block printing, felting, painting, sewing....). Everyone was so happy and relaxed and completely blissed-out by the activities and the setting.
Obviously we were completely enthralled with the natural beauty of Squam, but it was the incredible people we met that made the experience truly unforgettable. We were so happy to have made so many amazing new friends: from Elizabeth (the founder/organizer) and her crew of fantastic helpers, to all the students and all the teachers (Betz, Marisa, Maya, Laura, Lisa, Lizzy, Sally, Lisa....) it was the connections we made with these wonderful people that made the trip truly magical. We highly encourage everyone to check out Squam Art Workshops and make plans to attend in the future. Hopefully we'll see you there!
