Encaustic Classes with Carrie Goller
If you are looking for a gift of the non-material kind, artist and owner Carrie Goller is holding personal and group encaustic classes in her beautiful home studio overlooking Hood Canal. Get the inside scoop of what Carrie has learned from over 16 years of working with the medium and bring home your very own encaustic painting at the end of the day. You can find more information about classes and schedule by clicking here.
Of course there are plenty of special family-friendly holiday events happening in downtown Poulsbo. Horse drawn carriage rides will continue every Saturday until Christmas, and Father Christmas will be in his shop to take pictures with visitors outside the Marina Market from 11-3 on Saturdays and Sundays until Christmas. The 49th annual Lighted Boat Parade will be on Saturday, December 15th starting at 5pm and will make rounds through Keyport, Agate Passage and down to the Suquamish dock before making their way back up around 9:15pm.
Lastly we wish you all happy, safe holidays - we are planning a merry Christmas and happy New Year! We will be back in touch with you all in 2019.

Artist Charles Goller creates intricately wire-wrapped jewelry from precious gemstones and crystals which he selectively imports world-wide. He also does specialized custom work. He has worked hard to establish trusting connections and cares deeply about his sources; many in small villages around the globe, where the gems are mined by the villagers and contribute to the majority of their income. Recently Charles has been invited to a museum and several galleries in Sedona, AZ and Santa Fe, NM and is also supplying a New Zealand store with his work. Ever-expanding his skills, currently Charles is becoming an engraver, which keeps him rather busy. However, he still does accept commissions.
