After six months of not teaching, I can say it’s unlikely I’ll ever go back to teaching again. I’m getting an incredible amount of work done on furniture, writing, editing and research. And I’m sleeping better.
But as much as I enjoy The Hermitage, I know it’s good to have some human contact from time to time.
So this is a reminder that we will have our doors open at 837 Willard St., Covington, KY 41011 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 14. We’ll have all our books there, plus free stickers, T-shirts that are exclusive to our storefront, letterpress posters and we will spray paint the dividers on your butt, if so requested.
My daughter Katy will be there selling some soft wax, and John (the other half of Lost Art Press) will be there, as will as Raney Nelson of Daed Toolworks.
I’ll also be opening the storefront on Sunday, May 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. so that members of the Early American industries Association can stop by on the way home from the organization’s national meeting at the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.
Here are the days we will be open for the rest of 2016:
We might open one day during Woodworking in America (Sept. 16-18), but it will be tricky to manage because I am teaching the entire weekend and John will be working the Lost Art Press booth during the Marketplace. So stay tuned.
