The Fayerweather Craft Guild is dedicated to preserving old crafts and promoting new ones. We're now open for our 48th season of craft demonstrations and hands-on workshops. Learn a skill from scratch or bring in your own project and get the advice of an expert. New this year is Fair Weather Crafters Circle, an informal monthly get-together for crafters to work on their projects, share information and inspire one another.
In our historic cottage, you'll find an ever-changing array of decorative and useful items created by our artisan members and available for purchase at modest prices (most under $20). There's something for everyone on your gift list, including pets!
Our 2013 calendar of demonstrations, workshops and special events is here. Demonstrations are free, while workshops require a small
materials fee (cash or check only), payable to the
instructor. Invite a friend, or make it a parent-teenager
outing! Since workshop space is limited, reservations are requested, either in person at Fayerweather House, by telephone to 401-789-9072, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
