Event details
We are looking for teachers!  Please contact the autocrat if you are interested in teaching a class.

As spring warms in preparation for summer, come and stretch your creative wings at Giggleswick's annual Garden of Arts and Sciences!  Bring an instrument to perform, cook food to share, display your latest clothing - all types of creative arts are welcome.  Fiber, food, painting, illumination, performing arts, music, astronomy, if it is an art or a science we want you to bring it to display or perform!  There will be classes on all varieties of the arts, as well as performances and displays for all ages.  A delicious dayboard will be included for all.

Because this is a completely dry site, if you would like to do a display or demonstration on brewing, you may bring ingredients and information, but you cannot bring any actual alcohol onto the premises.

If you are teaching a class or if you are not inclined to teach but would like to display, please bring something to put on our display tables!  There will be time during dayboard for everyone to peruse and enjoy the various displays.

We are hoping to secure Laura Gustafson, a performer of Renaissance instruments who has presented with us before, to present this year.  More details on the schedule and presentation to follow.
