June 7th 2014 (10:00-1:00)

Learn to create beautifully pressed flowers along with design elements. Nature has provided us with the perfect designs, patterns and colors that we want to capture because of the simple nature of how they make us feel when we come into contact with them. By pressing plants, we are able to extend our enjoyment of them throughout the seasons and create pictures & cards that we can pass along to those we want to share with in this delight. Lynette and her stunning works have been showcased in books and magazines; she is an extraordinarily talented woman from right here in Maine.

Matthew Robbins
June 21st and 22nd 2014 (10:00-1:00)

We have been so fond of Frances Palmer’s pottery here for years. Her detailed earthenware and porcelain pieces are timelessly classic; perfect for anyone’s home or table! Each one is a unique original, hand-crafted by Frances who has been throwing pottery since 1987. We are pleased to announce that Frances’ pottery will be on display and available for purchase here in our shop. We invite you to join us here at her artist brunch time reception, view her beautiful pottery and enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Sarah Ryhanen – A Floral harvest Workshop

We here at Snug Harbor Farm are pleased to present A Floral Harvest Workshop taught by the extremely talented Sarah Ryhanen of Saiupa and The Little Flower School. Her compositions have a haunting, sensual quality. She is known for her loose, natural, garden-focused floral designs. Fueled by her reverence for flowers and penchant for travel, she has traversed the globe teaching, learning, and hunting down the most beautiful floral specimens. Her work has appeared in publications such as The New York Times, Vogue and Martha Stewart.

October 11th -13th 2014 (9:00-5:00)
Reception Saturday (3:00-5:00)

Ioneta offers a thoughtful and considered collection of vintage and new pieces, functional objects, works on paper and ceramics from both Japan and the state of Maine. Mostly these pieces represent the way I choose to live: with pieces that inspire, comfort, and show the ability of the hand that made it. Tradition, craft, utility and self expression, these form the basis of a collection that is ever-evolving and dynamic. Join us Columbus Day weekend for an especially collected trunk show.
