Steve Rowe, a master carver from Saybrook, will be leading two- one day workshops for those interested in learning this skill.
Steve talks about the joy of carving, saying: “Seeing a chunk of firewood being sculpted into an eating utensil can be fairly interesting to a wide variety of interests. The art. The Zen of it…personally find it meditative to carve. Beautiful wood shavings. And often a cool finished object.” These sessions are limited to 6 people each. Steve will provide tools to use for the day as well as expert guidance on how to chose the wood (perhaps a fallen limb from a recent storm?) and how not to need too many band aids. Program is offered February 8 and February 22, 2020, starting at 10AM, with more sessions planned as needed. The cost is $150 per person. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org of your interest. A check sent to Dudley Foundation fro $50 will reserve your space

The museum occupies a portion of the land farmed by the Dudley family foralmost 300 years. Cared for and maintained by volunteers, the farmhouse museum, barns, outbuildings, grounds and livestock appropriate to the period allow visitors to step back in time to experience farm life as it once was. The concert venue, The Munger Barn,was originally built as a cow barn in 1890 in Madison, CT. It was dismantled and relocated to the Dudley Farm Museum in the mid 1990s. An old fashioned barn raising in 2002 brought it back to life as the center for social gatherings , programs and workshopsat the farm. Visit www.dudleyfarm.com formore information about the museum and how to help preserve the past for future generations.
