Where will a workshop take you next?
Most traditions take more than a weekend workshop to master. For any traditional art form, whether it is blacksmithing, playing the fiddle, or hooking a wool rug, it takes hours and hours of practice – and it helps to have the guidance of a true master who can share the intricacies of technique and the cultural importance of the tradition.
The New Hampshire State Council on the arts offers grants to support this type of learning experience through Traditional Arts Apprenticeship grants. To learn more click here.
