Rustic Arts and Nature Crafts and so much Woodlanders on July 10-13

The workshop list for Shake Rag Alley's 13th Annual Woodlanders Gathering has just been posted on the website! Dates are Thursday, July 10th through Sunday, July 13th.

Many rustic arts lovers come back year after year for this four day event (you can sign up for 1, 2, 3 or the entire 4 days). But if you're new to Woodlanders, you might want to check it out and seriously consider making 2014 your first time. It's really an experience like no other.

It's "summer camp for adults".
But what does that mean? It means over 40 nature-based workshops ranging from rustic furniture building to blacksmithing to woodcarving to basketry and more. It means fun (and admittedly somewhat goofy) evening activities like the Twig Wars and the Mini-Boat Race down a neighbor's stream. It means great food with communal lunches under the tents and picnics, a Haiku Tree, and a Silent Auction where you can bid on some really cool hand-made stuff.

It means intriguing activities going on non-stop in every nook and cranny of the Shake Rag campus, both inside and out. But mostly it means a relaxing good time shared with a great group of people who love to make things using natural materials. So it really IS a lot like summer camp.

Here's a link to the complete schedule.
