Sandbridge is about much more than the workshop and the actual class time. It is about building a community and sharing. Along those lines, there are many informal and formal events and traditions. If you have a talent you would like to share with us, let Ken know. Here are some of the many traditions and events that happen during the week.
Watercolor classes - For several years, Nancy Gray (week #1 and Spring) has run water-color classes during our lunch time break.
Zentangle - Last year, Holly Williams (week #2) introduced us to Zentangle
Drum circles - Marya Katz (week #3) was the original instigator of making noise! It has now spread to other weeks and has been much fun. If you have a percussion instrument, bring it!
Tech talks - Laurie (all weeks) reviews the wonders of Newzik and all those other techy things that scare you.
Wednesday coffeehouse performances - This is a super fun time to share a piece or two that you have been working on. You may play solo or team up with anyone including Ken, ML or Laurie.
Periodic fiddle lessons - Ken schedules this as time/energy permits. Bring your fiddle! Or try it from scratch as we always have a few extra fiddles!
Sandbridge scholarship fund auction - We try to have an auction every week. If you have items you would like to auction off, bring them. (the fund is super well funded though!)
Bread making – Jerry Radcliffe (week #2) makes bread daily.
Cakes! – Roxann Smith (week #1) has been known to make great birthday cake!
Friday afternoon beautiful tunes jam - This is a really special jam where we relax and play only sweet tunes!
A to Z jam - Throughout the week, we start on the letter A and try to play at least one tune that begins with each letter of the alphabet.
How to put a boat in a bottle - Robin Suddaby offered this in week #2
Games - ladder toss, spike ball, foosball, pool, mini ping pong, bocce ball, pie in the face - throughout the week, for those of us who love games!
