Artisans On the Green

Over 30 New Hampshire artists and craftspeople will gather on the Sandwich Town Green on Thursday, August 10, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to demonstrate, describe, and sell quality arts and crafts. The public is welcome to talk with the artists, watch them work, and purchase objects they love. Organized by Sandwich Home Industries each summer for many years, this event is a terrific way to celebrate the Home Industries mission and their commitment to community crafts education.

Artisans show expertise in every media: fiber, glass, clay, metal, wood, paint, jewelry, and photography are all represented. Ben Adriance is one of the many local Sandwich craftspeople who will be demonstrating their craft on August 10th. His woodworking skills and wood products include custom cabinetry, shaker furniture, furniture repair, as well as the fabrication of English style field gates.

The free daylong event occurs in rain or shine. Free parking is plentiful and lunch is available from the Sandwich Women’s Club with proceeds supporting their annual education scholarship. Meredith Village Savings Bank is once again the official sponsor of this event. “We are incredibly grateful for the bank’s belief in crafts education, the Artisans on the Green day, and Sandwich Home Industries and for their generous support to us for 2017.” said Martha Nichols, the Gallery Manager at Sandwich Home Industries.
