On Saturday, Sept. 20, pottery with Ara Cardew of Cornish Flats, N.H. will be the features of the week. Ara, a third generation potter who grew up at Wenford Bridge Pottery, UK, will demonstrate the steps and techniques involved in pottery making – using hand techniques and a potters wheel.

Next week is the final Saturday, featuring coopering with David Salvetti, Fulton, NY.

On Traditional Craft Saturdays, the operating dairy farm, farm life exhibits, restored and furnished farmhouse, plus programs and activities are included in the entrance fee.
