In the spirit of the season, Studio Fresca will be hosting Holiday Open Studio & Gallery Days, from 11am until 4pm so stop by for a visit to see the art and meet the artist! The studio will have works in progress and demonstrations of various mosaic techniques on display — and we'll have that little antique stove quietly puffing along like a little freight train, so all will be cozy and warm down in the studio. Head on upstairs to the Gallery at Heart Winds House to view completed works, check out the latest jewelry and enjoy hot beverages and holiday treats prepared by Chef Dave from Hearty's. Weather permitting, bring along your snow shoes or XC skis and take a turn around the meadow or traipse through the trails in the woods.
Location: Studio Fresca at Heart Winds House 3780 Ridge Rd. East Burke, VT
