Spindleworks

May 9th- a big day with two great events!

The All Species Parade
the what: The All Species Parade is held each spring to celebrate the diversity of natural species living on our planet, whether  animal or plant, vegetable or mineral. The community is invited to join in this celebration by walking together bedecked and bedazzled as a natural species.
the what not: there are only a few guidelines to the parade: live animals should be left at home, only people powered vehicles  are invited (motorized wheelchairs are the exception), and we ask there to be no messaging or slogans. Let your costume or puppet be your expression.
the time: The parade begins at 4:30 on the Brunswick town green. We will start to line up at 4:00 so that we can have a prompt start.

A Far Away Spindleworks

Spindleworks

The following travel reflection was offered by John Boylston, dedicated art supporter and father of our talented Caroline.

For the month of February this year Caroline attended an art program in Invercargill, New Zealand, about as far South on the South Island as you can go. It takes 5 plane trips and about 21 hours of flying to get to there. It is her third time there and as New Zealand seasons are 6 months out of phase with ours, their February is similar to our August.

The program there is called CS Arts and has 40 clients, much the same number as Spindleworks, however as they only have one small room, which is used by other programs, they run their program differently. There are only 3 days the program operates (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) with 2 sessions each day (a morning and afternoon session).
