Daufuskie Community Farm & Artisan Village
From Hay Wagon to Gypsy Caravan
The Gypsy Caravan built on a Hay Wagon by the talented carpenter, Chris Candau is nearing completion and will be added to the Artisan Village. It will be used to take Artisan Village creations to the Farmer's Market and to crafts venues on the island. It can also double as a camping experience for visiting artisans.

The cottage is being restored and should be open in the near future for local potters.
Pat has her Wacky Shack ready to open at the entrance to the Artisans Village. She will be showing her creative skills (all non-electric) on the loom, spinning wheel, leather work and treadle sewing machine.
Also appearing will be talented spinner Leanne Coulter and master weaver Sara Deitch. Call to set up an appointment to watch them in action.
Gasali Adeyemo is an internationally known artist that we had the pleasure hosting in May. He is known for teaching dyeing with natural dyes with an emphasis on Indigo. This was the first class taught for artists of the Artisan Village on Daufuskie. It was held May 28-31, 2015. New indigo artisans Leanne Coulter and Rhonda Davis have formed a new business, "Daufuskie Blues" and thoroughly enjoyed Gasali's class!
