Our local Historical Commission asked me to demonstrate chair caning at their fall festival and to promote the festival the local newspaper wrote an article about it. The combination of festival exposure and publicity from the paper has created a flurry of business for chair caning at Hayloft Studio. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures. I did work in the child’s wicker chair while I was at the festival. I am ready to paint it (the paint on it now is not of any historical value) and then repair the seat. Here are some photos.
Just had a lovely interview with Andy from the local paper, the Greenfield Recorder. Very sweet man and he told me about an artist friend, Danny Quirk, who’s an anatomy freak like myself. Awesome dissection paintings. Google him.
So, Hayloft Studio should be in the paper as a feature of the Whately Fall Festival where I will be caning chairs with my mom this Sunday.
Wow! I haven’t posted in a long time! I guess while I am sitting at the side of the road waiting for AAA, I should write one up. Lots of chairs have passed through the Hayloft in the past year. Here’s the latest repair: a lovely green wicker rocker.
I still have my loyal students. It has been a year of anatomy intensives and basic figure drawing. My favorite topics!
We also have a kitty that has adopted us as his barn hosts. We call him ghost for his stealthy appearances and also he seems to be the grey apparition of our first barn cat Barney. Ghost likes the company of my creepy dolls.
Okay, AAA is here. I will post more soon.
