Putney Craft Tour
This year our colleagues and friends at he Putney Craft Tour are going virtual. This tour is the oldest continuous craft tour in the country. What began in 1978 as a meeting around Margot Torrey’s dining room table led the way to a national movement of craft tours starting up in many areas around the United States.
This year’s online tour will feature 19 local artisans—including glass blowers, potters, jewelers, weavers, painters, woodworkers, artisan cheesemakers, and winemakers. From November 27 to 29th, crafters will open their virtual studio doors, offering video demonstrations, personal shopping experiences, and studio visits via Zoom. Some artists are scheduling in-person studio visits or virtual video chats by appointment — details can be found on Artist’s pages. Sandglass will once again be joining our community with a virtual shadow puppet making offering for the whole family.
Sandglass Theater is supported by the New England Foundation for the Arts through the New England Arts Resilience Fund, part of the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund, an initiative of the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with major funding from the federal CARES Act from the National Endowment for the Arts.
