Over this past Friday and Saturday, five members of The Studio Gallery participated in demonstrating some facets of their arts as part of the Artists Interactive program.
Amy Higgason, Pigeon Road Pottery, was working on clayboard, carving the type of designs she puts on her pottery. Each year, The Studo Gallery has a new two-sided bookmark printed with all the participating artists listed on it. This year, Amy did the graphic design work using this type of carving. Beautiful!
Kathleen Kimball, Salmagundi Arts, is a collage artist and soapmaker. On Saturday, however, she was working in The Studio Gallery. During slow times, she joined us out front in the sun and sat knitting on a sweater. I love how all these artists are known for particular areas of art, yet surprise you with what else they enjoy doing!
Louise Engelbrecht, Black Squirrel Studio, painter and weaver, had brought a table loom and sat threading the heddles. Unfortunately, she left early in the afternoon before we brought out the cameras.

Looks like a fun day! Loved the picture of the sock machine…..I feel like I have a slightly better idea of how one works now.Sue
I wish we lived closer! Glad that everyone had a nice time and I’m sure many people enjoyed seeing the demonstrations.
Looks like you had a great day. And hope the folks that viewed your crafts where inspired. We have to keep crafting alive whether it be painting, weaving, knitting, drawing, pottery, etc. I have always loved doing craft projects of all kinds. Your all an inspiration. Keep up the good work and have fun.
Hi Mike, good to hear from you! Yes, we had a nice time, and will have again, we have a couple more demo days coming up in June, plus the Northwoods Art Tour here as mystudio is on it this year. Yes,wouldn't it be nice to live closer to some of the fiber people we meet online.
Sue, these demo days are a lot of fun, love the time spent with the other artists as we usually only see each other at business meetings. Though we didn't have a lot of visitors at our demos in May, we expect that to pick up in June.
Hi Terrie, yes, we are all helping keep these arts alive aren't we?So much is being lost today. I like feeling like a thread or link in a long chain through history, working at our arts, and hopefully be able to pass them on to future generations.
