Grand Marais, Minnesota will be a hotbed of craft celebration next month. Spoons have been showing up on the doorstep of North House Folk School for the fundraising auction that I wrote about in this post. There is a rich variety, with some arriving from as far away as Australia and Lithuania. The auction will run from September 7 through September 16, so there’s still time to send a spoon. Here is the address:
If you’d like to preview some of the items and plan your bids, click this link to the site for the online auction and click on “view all items.” There are some unexpected surprises like a donated bowl made by Emil Milan. The recently published book honoring Emil is stunningly beautiful and an inspiring read.
If you can make it to Grand Marais in person, you won’t want to miss the “Unplugged” events over the weekend of Sep. 14-16th, including Jögge Sundqvist live and in action with his Rhythm & Slöjd performance as well as his teaching.
I also wanted to pass along some very special and unique opportunities available at North House where they are accepting applications for Craft Education Internships and their Artisan Development Program. Check out those links for more exciting information.
