Couples matching peacock green masks by Daragallery
Makers-on-Hudson will be enjoying the beautiful weather at two very different events this weekend. If you love The Renaissance era, then hasten thee to Altamont, N.Y. near Albany, on Saturday and Sunday for the NY Capitol District Renaissance Festival . There you can partake in all the festivities, and also meet Dara, from Dara Gallery, purveyor of beautiful, handmade masks and accessories. Dara uses both paper mache and leather to create her gorgeous masks, eye patches and hair accessories for men and women
Tea Lovers Gift Set by BeauTeaStudio
While you are "hastening," don't forget to meander over to Dover Plains, in Dutchess County, on Saturday only, to visit Jules and Olya of Beau Tea Studio at the Crown Maple/Organic Hudson Valley Food and Arts Festival . Their tea shop and apothecary features organic teas, body products and lovely vintage tea cups. Perfect gifts for anyone. We're sure you will enjoy these two unique events and meeting two of our talented makers in person.
