Pompoms

Arriving for the first time at Squam Art Workshop gives you an immediate chlorophyll hit. Before describing the Marks Magic and Meaning workshop i’d like to set the scene. How do you not have expectations about a place that has occupied your waking dreams ever since you first heard about it? Everybody raves about this retreat.

PointComfort

Immediately I felt enveloped with care. Point Comfort cabin provided just that. My roomie Jody Alexander of Wishi Washi Studio was the perfect match – we read and swam together most companionably.

You can read about the two illustrious women who created Rockywold Deephaven Camps, with it’s visionary philosophies. What an extremely special place.

Early every morning i swam here.

IceHouse

This is the Ice House. Instead of refrigerators, each cabin has an ice box, replenished daily with frozen chunks harvested from Squam Lake in February.

WoodShed

And here is the Wood Shed. The log stores in our cabins were kept filled, with fires set to be lit with one match – wondrous!
