  • "South Pacific" Set Nearly Done
    I've been working this week to finish up the set for the Wilmington Friends 8th Grade Musical: "South Pacific". Had a lot of great help by the crew and the parents. The parti for the set is "found objects turned into useful things", and that has been helpful in making some of the last minute decisions that always arise at the end of a project.

    The show opens next Friday, so this is my last building day. Will tune up the set and add some visual texture next week. Pictures to follow.

    Then it's on to "To Kill a Mockingbird".

  • One More Set Done
    On Saturday we finished the set for "To Kill a Mockingbird", presented on April 15th and 16th at 7 pm at Wilmington Friends School. Go look in my portfolio to see in progress pictures of the set.

    I could not have gotten as much done as I did if I hadn't had fabulous help. Big thanks go to Pete, a parent who helped me with the 8th Grade Musical set, and then opted to join me for the Upper School Drama. His skill at building the house and just in general working without the need for direction has been a real boon.

    And many thanks go to the cast and crew who came out on Saturdays to paint (and paint and paint). I really appreciate their willingness to do whatever odd thing I was asking them.

    Finally, thanks go to Todd and Donnie, the directors, for their help and faith in me, even when they weren't sure what I was building. Because the set for a drama stays on the stage for the whole play (usually), we had to treat it like a character in the play.

  • New and Improved Summer
    I will be at three markets this summer. I will be back at Kennett Square and Newark Natural Foods, and I'm starting up at New Garden (PA).

    Kennett Square starts on Friday May 6th and runs through the end of October. It starts at 2:00 and ends at 6:00.

    New Garden Growers Market starts Saturday May 7th and ends November 19th. It starts at 9 and closes at 1.

    Newark Natural Foods starts on Sunday May 8th and runs until the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The market opens at 10 and closes at 2. I am planning to be there on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.

    Please stop by whichever one is closest to you and say hi. And shop for fresh vegetables, bread, flowers, and other locally made products.

  • Kennett Square Market ending soon
    October 29th is the last day of the Kennett Square Farmers Market. I've had a lot of fun there and it has been very successful for me. There may be a winter market - stay tuned for information. See you next year!

  • Last Day at Newark Natural Foods
    I'll be at the market at Newark Natural Foods on November 21st (the last day of the market). I've gotten great questions and look forward to meeting with people. I hope to be back there next year on a regular schedule.
