Ordinary to Extraordinary: Historic Deerfield Folk Art Studio

Adapted from a Historic Deerfield press release:

Folk art works are often useful things made by ordinary, untrained people - who happen to be gifted with imagination and skill. The choice addition of color, pattern, picture and design make something meaningful out of a routine bedcovering, a directional sign, or a child's toy.  Folk art of all kinds can be found throughout the village of Deerfield and the History Workshop will be transformed by folk art that we make with our visitors.

"Through Her Eyes, In Her Words" at Historic Deerfield

From a Historic Deerfield press release:

The women of colonial times are often thought of as "seen and not heard." This is far from the case, as we now know. Three authors have uncovered the extraordinary lives of three colonial women - from the extensive diary of Mehetabel Chandler Coit to the life of Elizabeth Porter Phelps to the writings of Phillis Wheatley, the first English-speaking person of African descent to publish a book in America.  These three women will be the focus of Historic Deerfield's 2013 Summer Lecture Series titled "Through Her Eyes, In Her Words: The Lives and Writings of Three Colonial Women." The presentations will take place on July 11, 18, and 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Garonzik Auditorium, Koch Science Center, at Deerfield Academy.
