Williamstown, MA - The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation, at Sheep Hill in Williamstown, is looking for local artists for their upcoming "Sheep to Shawl" festival. The festival takes place at the farm on Sheep Hill, Saturday, May 5th, from 11 am to 3 pm.
The festival celebrates local history, artisans, and craftspeople, as well as springtime activities around the rural farm. There will be water buffalo, Llamas, miniature sheep, herding dogs, and sheep shearing demonstrations. Also, the Spinners & Weavers guild will be showing their skills and wares. To expand our celebration of time honored arts, we are looking for potters, painters, weavers, sculptors, and textile artists who would be interested in sharing their talents with the community through demonstrations and/or displays. The festival usually attracts over a hundred visitors to the farm, so it would be a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and patrons. Tables and assistance in setting up will be available. Artists can be outdoors, if weather permits, or inside the farmhouse if the weather is bad.
