Next up will be a sampling of collage artist Hidde Van Duym's work; you can read more about him and the show here, and sign up for a creative, hands-on workshop with Hidde here.
In the mean time, though, be sure to tune in for the premiere of Craft in America's latest episode, Forge, which happens tonight on PBS. You'll have to check your local listing for the time and channel, but you won't want to miss this one, which features a pioneering young female metalsmith named Chloe Darke taking on tradition at Old Newbury Crafters as well as Iraq war veteran Tom Pullin's haunting work.

Check out blogger Amy T. Shuster's breakdown of one of our fun summer events: a chocolate and printmaking class held in our Center on west 3rd Street. Participants learned about the process of making artisanal chocolate and the secret to the colorful tops of Compartés Chocolatiers' delectable truffles; they also made monotype prints under the guidance of printmaker extraordinaire Christina Carroll. Amy's got some beautiful photos of the day, the prints and the food, so be sure to head over to Backyard Bites to check it all out!
