First Nickel Plate Studio tour July 23, 2016

Saturday July 23 the inaugural Nickel Plate studio tour will run from 10-6. Due to the fact that my shop is not in the official Nickel Plate catchment zone, I will set up a display of my wares on the patio of the Judge Stone House. I will also be doing a demonstration of making handmade rustic willow furniture during the event.
The trolley tour sounds very fun. The drive to some of the outlying studios will be a pleasant one. My buddy John Bundy's shop will be on the tour as well as Strawtown Pottery.
It has long been a dream of mine and many other artists to get a tour like this going and I wish my shop was just a few hundred yards west.
Tour more than a dozen amazing art studios and shops throughout five communities in one day!

NOBLESVILLE, IND. — Don’t mind the palette knives, wood shavings and varnish smudges.
