A school away from school


We are delighted to share that Spindleworks is host once again to a winter term student from Bennington College. Franci Revel, originally from Delaware, went to high school in Maine and finds herself happily back in the state for this bleak winter to join us at Spindleworks for her 7 week winter term. While here Franci is learning about the role of artist mentors, getting to know the artists, and sharing her writing and knitting skills with all of us. In addition, Franci has taken on the assignment of uploading more images to our online shop! She has also picked up the Spindleworks blog where intern Helen Mohney left off. So please check in at to catch up on what we have been up to through Franci’s eyes. You can also read up on the blog she is creating for school at:

We are immensely grateful for Franci’s work, bright spirit and easy nature.

While not a school in itself, education is part of our mission. Spindleworks is host to numerous students over the course of each year, including interns such as Franci, volunteers from Bowdoin, and OT students through the University of Maine system.
