New England artisans to gather at Codman Estate
August 29, 2016
This juried show features the fine work of more than one hundred artisans from throughout New England. Shop for jewelry, pottery, painting, food wares, glass, photography, fiber art, metalworking, woodworking, clothing, and much more.
See demonstrations of wood carving, painting, book binding, felting, and pen-making throughout the day, and enjoy live musical performances with the “Moz-Jazz” sound of Albino Mbie and Phil Hunt’s folksy guitar and vocals. Food vendors include Clover Food Lab, Island Cow Ice Cream, and Trolley Dogs. First-floor tours of the c. 1740 house are included with admission.
Once called “the handsomest place in America,” this country estate was home to five generations of the Codman family. The sixteen-acre grounds feature a hidden turn-of-the-century Italian garden with perennial beds, statuary, and a reflecting pool filled with water lilies.
Admission is $5. Admission is free to Historic New England members and children under 12. For information, call 617-994-5914.
