Teaching

Info for Class at my shop in Lyme

Each Spring I teach classes. The last class I do each year is at my shop in Lyme, generally in June. In some ways this is the most fun place to teach, as everything is there: prints, books, tools, odd stuff that might be calling for experiment. I have posted photos of teaching at the shop in the Blog.

 

Introduction to Japanese Color Woodblock Printmaking at the MBFA gallery

June 7 - June 9, 2019,  at the Matt Brown Fine Art gallery in Lyme, NH (tuition $525 including studio materials fee). Room and meals available.
3-day workshop is taught in six three hour sessions. Send me a note or give me a call (603-795-4619) if you would like more info. Over the phone can be the easiest way to figure out details of rooming, meals, transportation.

Rooms:
I can take two folks at my house in Lyme, 1 mile south on Rte 10, @ $80/night.  There is a choice of two inns in the center of town and various bed and breakfast arrangements.  I recommend contacting first:

-Dowd’s Country Inn, http://www.dowdscountryinn.com
Mention you are doing this class with me and they will offer you the special “Lyme” rate ($125/night?). This inn is only three doors away from where we will be working and it is where we will do dinners, so its handy.  Also in Lyme is:

-The Lyme Inn, at the other end of the Common
-Loch Lyme Lodge, approx 1 mile north of town on a lovel lake, Post Pond.  They rent cabins and cottages.
-Breakfast on the Connecticut, an upscale bead and breakfast several miles north of town owned and operated by a cool young couple.

Meals:
All of these meals are optional. 
For folks staying here at the house we will be doing a breakfast for $9 /breakfast (8am).
Lunch on Friday will be Thai, made here in Lyme by Pappan Sitthavady. Lunch on Saturday and Sunday will be by J.J. Pippin of the Lyme Country Store, vegetarian with a salad, a quiche, a lasagna, something like that. Cost for the lunches is $12.
We will eat out dinners Fri and Sat night at the Dowd’s Inn. Depends on what you order but there are some nice options both meat and vegetarian, usually $20 - $30. 

Directions:
from Hanover - (Rte 89 north can take you to Hanover):
         Head north on Rte 10 (only through road headed north from Hanover) approximately 10 miles. As you come into the town of Lyme find Matt Brown Fine Art in the rear part of a building that is on your left as you start to head around the Common, it is the building houseing "Mascoma Savings Bank".

from East Thetford - (Rte 91 can take you to Thetford)
         Head east on rte 113 after getting off the Interestate, at bottom of the hill take a right and a hundred yards or so later a left to go over the Connecticut River and cross into NH. Follow winding road for 1 mile, at stop sign with school on your right and church straight ahead, find Matt Brown Fine Art in the building that is right there on your left with parking alongside.

Public transportation includes an Amtrak train that stops at White River Jct., VT (approx 25 minute drive) and the Dartmouth Coach bus that stops at the the Hanover Inn, Hanover, NH (this is a 10 minute drive). Either we pick you up or you take a taxi. There is also an airport in Lebanon, which is approx. 25 minutes from the shop. Flying to Boston's Logan airport and taking the Dartmouth coach is quite easy.

Schedule:
We start at 9:30 on Friday morning, June 7. We'll be finishing up at 4 on Sun afternoon. The class follows a series of six sessions:
Friday:   9:30 - 12; 1 - 4;
