The 17th Annual Cotton Mill Open Studios and Holiday Sale will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 4-6, 2015. Artists and artisans will show and offer their work for purchase. Besides artists, musicians, bakers, performers, and craftspeople based at the Cotton Mill, talented artists and artisans from other studios in Brattleboro and nearby communities have been juried to participate. This festive event includes performances of music, dance, and circus acts; ceramics and fencing demonstrations; food and wine tastings; raffles and more. The range of creative offerings is remarkable, encompassing the decorative, the functional, the entertaining, and the delicious. In addition, there will be a display of artwork by K-8 students from the Putney Grammar School. All members of the family will find sights, sounds, tastes, and activities to stimulate and delight them—and it’s a terrific way to discover treasures for holiday giving. There will be a number of volunteers on hand to help guide you around the buildings and the three floors of the mill so you don’t miss anything.

Handicap accessible. Free admission.
