It’s busy at Pine Ridge!

Pine Ridge Studio pottery is set up at the Carp Farmers’ Market; opening day was May 12. I have a permanent spot inside the Market Building, right at the bottom of the ramp. Lots of Red Fox, Bird, Sheep and Maple Leaves pottery in stock, and of course more stock coming all the time. With the exception of the Carp Fair weekend, Sept. 22, my booth will open there every Saturday until the end of October.

Pine Ridge will be a stop on the Red Trillium Studio Tour, June 2 and 3. You’ll be able to visit both a garden and a pottery! Hours each day will be 10am to 5pm.

June 17 will be Wildflowers Day at Pine Ridge. Lots of native plants and ferns to see – plus there will be smallĀ  plants, and ferns, for sale in pots. The pottery will be open as well. Hours will be 10am to 4pm.

July 22 will be my annual Ferns Day. The ferns in the garden should be at their best that day. Come and see and learn about, our native ferns, maybe pick up one or two to plant at home.

August 19 will be an exciting day at Pine Ridge! Michael Peterson, a long-time basket maker, will lead a workshop on making baskets incorporating natural materials. We’ll forage for vine-y things, then have a light lunch, then learn to make our own basket. This workshop is limited to 6 people so that he will be able to give everyone lots of attention. Cost is $125; hours will be 10am to 5pm. Please contact us to register.

Pine Ridge will be on the Fall Red Trillium Studio Tour October 20 and 21.

The weekend of November 30 to Dec. 2, Pine Ridge will be at the Carp Farmers’ Market Christmas Market, and the West Carleton Arts Society’s 100 & Under Sale. The 100 & Under sale is just a few doors from the Market, in St. Paul’s United Church, so you will be easily able to visit both. Hours and other details will be listed once they are available.

The last big event at Pine Ridge will be the eagerly awaited annual Half Price Sale at the Studio. Dates are Dec. 8 and 9, hours will be 10am to 4pm. There will likely be several other artists as guests to visit as well. Details soon!
