Historic Ringness House offers craft fair, Norwegian style
By Elizabeth Devereaux
The weather for the third annual Ringness House Museum Craft Fair and Leif Erikson Day celebration was sublime. The musicians played quietly beneath the sunshade while Potter Jan Ahart worked at her wheel throwing vases and bowls, children played quietly and sausages sizzled on the grill. People milled around asking questions of the vendors who brought hand-braided whips, melted glass sculpture, knitted objects d’art, paintings and foodstuffs. All proceeds from the event go to maintaining the site.
