Our two plein air courses in Wakefield started at Fairbairn House: both Museum and Tourist Information Center – directly across the road from Wakefield’s famous covered bridge. The program included a tour of the museum, for those who could tear themselves away from the scenery that is…. easier the second week as weather was a tad damp.
Mara and her team at Fairbairn House made us very welcome. In appreciation, I presented an original watercolour sketch. In a couple of weeks, on the 30th of August, Fairbairn House is having their tenth anniversary party. France and I are planning to go and we hope to see you there! Fairbairn House and its environs are well worth a visit – don’t forget your sketch book. Check out the details at Fairbairn.ca.
You can also now find some pictures from our Wakefield sessions in the Workshop Galleries section of this blog: 4th to 6th August course and 11th to 13th August course, and on my (finally updated!) Facebook page.
