COVID

The success of this event, and the well being of everyone involved, depends on our collective commitment to uphold Vermont COVID guidelines.  This event is completely outdoors and under well ventilated shelters but there is a possibility this will still involve wearing masks, maintaining 6' spaces, frequent hand washing/sanitizer use. We will have hand washing stations available and all participants will need to sign a waiver with your contact information. Please do not come if you have symptoms - we will give a full refund if this occurs.

If guidelines do not permit this event to go on as planned, we will let registrants know as soon as possible and give the option to participate in our backup plan or for a full refund. We will contact registrants and update this website with any COVID related changes at least two weeks ahead of the event. There may be additional travel restrictions for out of state registrants, please keep abreast and follow the Vermont travel guidelines.

Attention Crafters!

If you would like to work on your own project in the company of other hand crafters in a beautiful outdoor setting, you are welcome to join us.  This option does not include workshops, but you are encouraged to join in all the other festivities. Weather dependent. Registration is required. The cost is $25, which includes pizza Saturday night.

Benefit Sale

We want to acknowledge the great privilege we have; to gather and practice our crafts safely during a time when our country is still embattled over basic human rights, equality and justice.   In solidarity, we will be holding a hand craft sale at the gathering, with the proceeds going to Crafting the Future.  This organization is a collective of artists concerned about the lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the fields of craft, art and design, who got together to support the careers of young, underrepresented artists by connecting them to opportunities that will help them thrive. We encourage you to check them out.


General Information
We are trying to make this a low impact event. We will have trash, recycling and compost bins available but please minimize.

 

We ask parents to keep in mind that they are responsible for supervising their own children. Teens will need to be supervised or be responsible and self-sufficient.

This is a very rural spot. Wifi and cell coverage are spotty - ask Penny for tips on how to access these. There will be no showers or electricity. But there is a pond for swimming (at your own risk of course), and there will be well ventilated shelter for classes and eating in case the weather is not ideal.

 


Meals
Saturday night pizza will be provided.
Bring your own food for the the remainder of the weekend.

Please bring your own cups, eating plates/bowls and utensils. There will be hand and dish washing stations and a fire pit to warm up or cook food. There is water on site. Gluten free and dairy free pizza can be available but please let us know if you want these when you register. 

 


Accessibility
The land is a somewhat flat farm field and apple orchard with sloped woods on one side and a pond and wetland complex on the other. Parking is a short walk away but there is a driveway to the edge of the field with a few parking spots for folks with less walking ability. Please let us know if you have any accessibility questions. 

 


Camping Information
We will let you know where the tenting area is when you get here. It is an easy 200 yard trek from the road - we will have carts available to haul gear. There will be a communal fire ring available for use any time. We hope to spend the evenings around the fire cooking, crafting and socializing. Please bring stories, melodies and a chair if you need/want one.

Please do not bring, alcohol, drugs, pets or firearms.

 


Inclusivity

We endeavor to cultivate a welcoming environment of purposeful inclusion. In this environment, all can feel safe, valued, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other and the rest of the natural world. We cherish humanity's diversity, which includes differences in sex, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual or affectional orientation, gender identity, financial means, education, and political perspective.
