Demonstrations featured Jan. 23-25
Patricia Griffin Studio and Gallery will be showcasing the work of four craftspeople in “The Handmade Show” from Friday through Sunday, Jan. 23-25. The studio and gallery are located in Cambria’s old schoolhouse at 880 Main St.
While the gallery is a participating merchant in the Art and Wine Festival that weekend, the show also is open to the public at large. All visitors are welcome to watch demonstrations, shop and talk with the artists.
Griffin, a potter, will have new work in the sales gallery and also will be demonstrating wheel-throwing and decorating techniques.
Paul Schmidt is a former computer systems engineer who now enjoys “coaxing” wood and plant materials into his woodcarvings and works of art. He’ll be bringing pine-needle baskets and his “Amazing Blooming Cambria Roses” to sell at the event.
Franz Affentranger will be showcasing his newest collection of handmade bistro tables. Affentranger, a dairy farmer in the central valley, is a part-time Cambria resident and has become known for the award-winning scarecrows he’s made for Cambria’s annual Scarecrow Festival.
Sharon Casey, a maker of contemporary art quilts, will be bringing a new line of quilted housewares and mug rugs exclusive to this event. She’ll be onsite Saturday and Sunday to meet visitors.
