You can bring your own lunch, or Fernwood has their own cafe and a wonderful chef. The Cafe offers a full-service menu that includes homemade soup, sandwiches, salads, fresh fruit, and desserts.  Everything there is delicious.

For those of you flying in, you can send me your watercolor board in advance of the workshop so you don't have to pack that in your luggage.  If want to do this, send me an email for my shipping address:  RosebudStudios@att.net.
