WILLIAMSBURG — A stunning horde of fine woodcraft was discovered over the weekend.  It was well concealed within dusty old chunks of poplar wood at Snow Farm, a craft school nestled in the Ancient Western Massachusetts hill towns.  Four fine woodworkers made the discovery, some of whom did not know they were woodworkers until Sunday.

“I’m so happy” remarked one artisan. “It’s a real treasure” said pyrography and  woodcrafting  guide Theo Fadel, “The Black Forest is so much larger than most people realize. Pockets of it regularly appear at places like Snow Farm where people are hunting for lovely artifacts. The fairy undergrowth often tosses up a lovely horde like this marvelous set of bowls from within its roots . . . just like that.”

The discovery was coincidental to Turn and Burn, Theo Fadel’s introductory workshop on woodturning and pyrography conducted the same weekend at Snow Farm.
