Artists and Crafters in the Buggy Barn

We’ve gathered together a group of talented Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to do demonstrations in the Buggy Barn for the remainder of the year.  This past Saturday Kidron oil painter Dennis Lipp treated folks to some of his beautiful rural landscapes featuring local farm scenes.  Dennis has a knack for capturing the scenery in exquisite detail.  His next demo will feature fall foliage.  A bonus to the trip to Lehman’s are the lovely farms along the way as the leaves begin to turn!

For the next couple Saturdays, back by popular demand, Two Sister’s Wool will demonstrate wool rug hooking.  Hooked rugs made in this fashion date back to colonial times.  You will get a chance to try your hand at it as well as learn the rich history surrounding this old craft.  Two Sister’s Wool will have on display some lovely primitive style rugs and wall hangings.  The added attraction to this craft is not just the beauty but the practicality and durability of the finished product.  Repurposing and recycling were not buzz words but a necessity for many as they used the wool they had on hand.  See how the same techniques can be used today to create something beautiful!

 

I am back to add to the farm animal murals and am scheduled most Thursdays until the end of the year.   My most recent mural is of a young colt.  He is there to bring some youth and friskiness to the buggy barn scene which already features a life sized hitching post with stately Amish work horses and a wall of busy body chickens!  Stop in for a photograph at the hitching post next time you are out.  In addition to the mural painting I will bring with me more equine and farm animal art.   Work in progress pics are posted here to see the mural take shape.

You can see what is happening on the Lehman’s Events Calendar .  It is possible to subscribe to the calendar so you can be notified of upcoming events to help plan your trip to Amish country.

About Sue Steiner

I am a professional artist living in the Kidron area. With a farming background and my love for animals and anything agricultural it was a natural fit when Lehman's asked me to paint the murals you see at the Kidron store. My biggest project to date was the mural of a life sized team of Amish work horses at the hitching post in the Buggy barn. I have the pleasure of adding to the murals on an ongoing basis as a painting demonstration during store hours on many Fridays. I also have the pleausre of bringing Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild members to the store for a wide variety of demos. You can find the demo schedule on this web site under the Events tab. It is always a pleasure to be in the store meeting new folks. I find Lehman's customers to be the very best, down to earth people! It is also my pleasure to help network with all the talented artists and crafters in the area.
