In this clinic we will refine communication with your horse on the lead line to develop a foundation for liberty work -- working your horse off the line. We will cover some important training tools and techniques that will help you build the connection and trust necessary for liberty work. A byproduct of this work is that your horse will become lighter and more responsive in everyday handling. April 21 9am-3pm at GER in West Townshend, VT. $125 per person (limited to 6 horses and includes stall and lunch). $30 to audit (includes lunch).
Susan von Glahn Calabria and BMAC Chief Curator Mara Williams discuss Calabria’s latest body of work, as seen in the exhibit Hereandafter, on view in the South Gallery through June 17.
Acclaimed Pysanky artist and instructor Jenny Santa Maria leads a hands-on workshop in the traditional Ukrainian folk art of egg decoration. Pysanky technique is similar to batik: Patterns are drawn on an egg with hot beeswax, which protects covered areas from subsequent applications of colored dyes. When the wax is removed, a multi-colored pattern is revealed. The finished product, with its intricate designs and symbols, belies the meditative process involved. The patience and concentration required to complete a single egg is rewarded when the wax is taken off. This workshop will cover the history and traditions surrounding Pysanky, how to make your own egg, and an independent practice session. The instructor will provide a variety of eggs, many hard-to-find traditional and non-traditional colored dyes, and tools. Participants will leave with a beautiful colored egg. Ages 12 and up, no experience necessary. Space is limited; registration required
