The Masters Series
OK, we can’t be good at everything, but we’d be foolish not to listen to others that have mastered their craft. The Phineas Wright House is proud to collaborate with an amazing group of creatives, artisans, entrepreneurs, collectors, chefs, bakers, artists, authors and learners. Each passionate about what they do, taking intentional action in the direction of their bliss. Grab a friend, a bottle of wine and learn a new skill from a master in an intimate, interactive setting.
In response to the global pandemic, we have decided to transfer the entire 2020 workshop calendar to 2021. We look forward to seeing you in the barn next year.
