“Honey I could do That!”

     Rustic Chair Workshop



   Come on out to The Old Homeplace for our “Honey I could do That” Rustic Chair Class!
Saturday July 27, 2019 9 am – 4pm
   This is a one day chair workshop, with Jo Kilmer of Spirit Tall and Cassilda Brown of The Willow Gypsies. Both artists are featured in the book, Making Willow Furniture: Three Women Share their Art.

     Jo is an award winning  artist and instructor from the famed Woodlanders Gathering and has taught clogging at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. Cassilda has taught willow furniture building at the Gadsden Cultural Arts Center in Gadsden, AL. Both of these women have been building rustic furniture for many years and are at the top of their craft. Having the rare opportunity to work side by side with them in a hands on workshop is something you don’t want to miss!
   This workshop will be held at The Old Homeplace in historic Attalla, AL. This is the home of reknown Blues Woman and artist Alabama Annie. She is known not only for her music but for putting together small intimate dinners for her fans to join her for music and a meal. This workshop is no exception!
   A light lunch will be provided during the workshop or you may bring your own. If you choose to take advantage of the dinner, reserve your spot and after the class everyone will pull up their new chairs around the table for dinner and a song, or perhaps some storytelling.
   This makes for a perfect gathering with three very talented artists and not only will you leave with a chair you built yourself, but you will leave with some good memories of time well spent and maybe even make a few new friends.
Also, as a thank you for coming out and joining us, everyone that stays for dinner will get a complimentary discount on their next event booking. It can be used for the next workshop or individually with any of your three hosts.
   We look forward to seeing you there!
