Open House 2021

Come join us for our annual open house!!

September 25th 2021


Following several postponements related to COVID-19, we are finally able to host our favorite get together this September! At this year’s Open House we’ll have demonstrations in the following areas:



Special musical performance:

We’re so excited to announce that this year in celebration being able to be together once again, we will be hosting professional bagpiper Gustav Person. Performances will bounce off the mountain and resonate through the Glen between the hours of 12-2 for 15 minutes sets.


New Products in the store and silent auction!

It wouldn’t be open house without new products in the store that you normally wouldn’t find; hot new notions, books, kits from Lunatic Fringe and more.

This year we will be having a silent auction for some awesome gift baskets our staff and volunteers have put together featuring their favorite products and a few fun surprises.

Typically, at our open house we would have a demonstration on sheep shearing. However, because we moved the event to the autumn from our normal June event we will have to miss this fun demonstration. But no worries, we will resume again in the spring of 2022.


Red Stone Glen will be providing complimentary light refreshments and pre-packaged snacks. If you plan to spend the day, please feel free to pack a picnic or charcuterie plater for you and your friends. Alcoholic drinks are permitted on campus, but please drink responsibly. Please look for receptacles to properly dispose of your waste and recyclables.




If you have not attended one of our events in the past, please note that all parking will be located in our lower meadow, and volunteers will help direct you. If you need assistance making your way to the Ridge or the main studio, please look for our marked pick-up locations where you can hitch a ride on one of the golf carts making the circuit around campus. Golf carts may also be used to help transport your small loom or spinning wheel, transport merchandise purchases to your vehicle or just feel the breeze through your hair as you tour the grounds in style.



Due to the small spikes in COVID cases in many areas of our country we are doing our best to keep everyone safe as we gather to celebrate. After surveying much of our customer and students base, we’re thrilled to find that an unusually high percentage are vaccinated compared to the general public, however we will be modifying our current operations in response to current trends. If you are a fully vaccinated individual, please feel free to enjoy our campus mask free. We do politely ask however if you choose to visit any of our indoor facilities including the classroom spaces, the retail store or the Ridge housing that you wear a mask to protect other guests with increased numbers in enclosed spaces. All of our demonstrators will be outside to help mitigate exposure in small, enclosed spaces and control numbers more easily.



The retail store will be open for guests to visit, but we will be again be making some modifications moving a large percentage of the store outside, limiting the number of customers in the store at a time and asking folks to wear a face covering. Staff will be on hand assisting customers with questions and controlling the number of guests inside at a time. Don’t worry there will be books to browse on your way in to help bide the time while you wait.
