Journey Through the Arts

As many of you know Mike and I have moved and restored this 1850s log cabin as our new log studio!  It is located behind our home at 190 Hope St, N. in Port Hope.  It has been an unbelievable process and we are so happy with our new Fall, Winter and Spring home!  (The Summer Program will always be held at the Mill—never fear!)
