Needham Holiday Open Studios

by Karen Mahoney of City by the Sea Ceramics

The studio and building I work out of, The Potters Shop inside the Gorse Mill Studios, is having a Holiday Open Studios event Saturday, December 4, and Sunday, December 5. That weekend in our building visitors will have the opportunity to see demonstrations of glass blowing, a reading of a new children's book by its author, pottery throwing, digital photography, and storytelling. Guests will also be able to meet the artists of the building.

The event is one of the many happenings to celebrate Needham's 300th birthday in 2011, and there are more artists throughout Needham participating for the weekend. The Jared Branfman Memorial Gallery at the Gorse Mill Studios will have various works created by the artists of the building as well as a collection of photographs of the historic 19th century knitting mills of Needham, including Gorse Mill.

This is a wonderful opportunity to find a local, handmade gift this holiday season. With so many types and styles of art inside Gorse Mill Studios, you will be sure to find something you love for someone you love. Support handmade!
