Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Fiber Arts Tool Set.jpg
  • Saturday, May 5th and Sunday May 6th, we'll be heading west for the annual Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  

A two day festival at the Howard County Fairgrounds celebrating fiber arts.  Mark will be there both days demonstrating woodturning fiber arts tools (nostepinnes, darning eggs and spindles) while Danielle and friends demonstrate how to use them. We'll also be selling turned tools, wooden buttons, fiber project bags, crochet hooks, cutting boards, rolling pins, garden dibbles and wooden bowls.   Stop by and see us at booth MW4 (Outside Midway Vendors, just across the road from The Dining Hall).  More about the festival:  Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

This weekend we'll re-open the Mark Supik Woodturning Workshops in our new location at 1200 N. Macon St..  Thanks to Robert Sullivan of Working Photography  for this photo of the Oliver lathes.  You'll be seeing more of his photos on our new website and in future posts.  

Sunday's Bowl Turning class is filled, but we still have one space left in the Right Start class for Saturday, so contact us if you are interested.  Here's the updated spring workshop calendar.  


Our Sign is UP!

It's official.  The sign is up at our new location at 1200 N. Macon St.  We're all back to work, making tap handles and turning wood.  The lathes and saws are wired and the paint booth is back in operation.  Woodturning classes will start back up in April.  Still lots of boxes to unpack, but we are settling in and very happy in our new home.  

Please visit us at our new location (1200 N. Macon St. 21205) and also visit our new website (at the same location)

Thanks for your help with our move!

With your help we've moved to 1200 N. Macon St.

Thank you, thank you!  To our volunteer packers and movers, for assembling, loading, wrapping, taping, stickering and labeing all of those those boxes; for lifting, stacking, unstacking and lifting again all of that lumber; for breathing in that sawdust, straining your backs, and enduring the cold; and for doing all of the above with smiles on your faces, we thank you.  For all of the encouraging words about our new building and the kind words about the  good times we shared  in our old building, we thank you.  You’ve  gone way beyond anything in the definition of friendship.  Thank you, thank you!  

Thanks also to our neighboring Highlandtown businesses who kept our volunteers filled with food and drink during our moving days:  DiPasquale's Italian Deli, Hoehn's Bakery, High Grounds Coffee & Monument City Brewing.    We're a bit north of Highlandtown now, but we'll be back often.

And to our staff,  Bob, Cami, Danielle, Joe, Matt, Will, Matt & Ryan for hanging in there through the upheaval. We're all ready to get back to work!
