Details: Embrace your creative spirit and join us at the Hart House Farm for a beautiful summer day of arts, crafts and more creative activities in nature – en plein air! Bring your easel, canvas and paints and be inspired by the farm’s stunning countryside setting. Walk along the farm’s many trails, ponds and cliffs and sketch the wildlife and plants you may see. Or, sit back and relax by the garden and think of your next project! Whether you are an artist at heart or have just been introduced to the creative realm of arts and crafts, come out to the Hart House Farm for an inspirational and reflective day.
There will be optional workshops on embroidery, sketching, and other art forms throughout the day. Materials for the embroidery workshop will be provided. Please bring your own sketchbook, pencils, painting materials, and cleaning materials.
If you would like to take a break from your artwork, feel free to swim in the ponds and relax in the sauna. You are also welcome to lend a hand in our vegetable garden. Our fresh produce will be used in future Hart House Farm events.
