Alpaca at Hedi Gossweiler’s. Hedi processes the fibre, spins it and knits it. She even dyes it! She knits everything from headbands to sweaters. And she felts too! I did not escape without spending money. Hedi shared her site with an artist in a trailer, and had hands on needle felting for those inclined. We didn’t have time.
The blacksmith taking a break.
The Highway 1 Studio Tour was part of Culture Days in Saskatchewan.
What is it? It is the blacksmith’s handiwork, and something tells me it took a long time to make.
Herbert Train Station housed a jewelry artist, a photographer, a painter, and a lady who painted on ceramic tile. All beautiful work!
Out in the country there was New Leaf Studio. There was drywall painting, art cards, and journal making.
Up the hill from New Leaf Studio was this little guest house filled with beautiful photography on canvas, and fridge magnets too. Very cute. Some beautiful photos.
Afternoon tea at the Herbert Train Station. 🙂
Tree swing on a glorious fall day. At New Leaf Studio.
And then there was the potter and photographer outside Waldeck, SK. Gorgeous work!
I highly recommend this little tour. Everyone is super friendly, the art work is great, and there’s food to eat along the way. There’s even a draw for a $500 prize of artwork! So all you folks in south west Saskatchewan, come out tomorrow from 11 AM – 5 PM – chat up the artists and see what’s up. 🙂
Hubby and I are relaxing in Swift Current tonight, known locally as Speedy Creek, and will be on our way to Alberta tomorrow sometime. 🙂
