About the event
While spots to view our popular Open Hearth Cooking event went quickly, there is more going on at Durand-Hedden for the January Open House, which is focused on showcasing traditional home arts.
Patty Chrisman, Durand-Hedden Board member and a member of the Essex County Spinners, will demonstrate spinning on an antique spinning wheel. Kari Capone, creator/owner of The Spinning Hand, will show visitors the joy of knitting. There will also be demonstrations of butter churning and tasting of rustic bread; dough rolling with dough courtesy of Village Trattoria, Maplewood; and a last chance to catch the Potter's Marks exhibit and view the antique pottery display.
The Country Store will also be open.
