The first weekend in December offers a wonderful way to kick off the winter holiday season in Vermont. Nearly a dozen Vermont inns open their doors for guests to stop by and enjoy some inn-dulgent treats while taking in all the unique and wonderful ways each inn decorates for the season. This self-guided tour can be completed in one or two days and does not require an overnight reservation at any of the inns (though we’d all love to have you!). The early bird pricing of $15 is available until November 27 at which time the price for tickets becomes $20. A ticket gains you access to all participating inns with complimentary goodies at each, and a cash bar available at some. Imagine hot soups, scrumptious appetizers, warm pastries, chocolate cake, and mulled apple cider. Some inns also have gift shops you can browse for holiday gifts. Visit at least six inns and be entered into a raffle for prizes, inn-cluding a free night at the inn of your choice.
Green Mountain Academy welcomes Jane MacKugler to lead a one-day workshop on Gelli® Plate Monoprinting. The class will take place on Saturday, December 1 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Equinox Village. The Gelli® Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It’s easy to clean and always ready for printing, which makes monoprinting on a Gelli® plate simple and fun. The gratification is immediate, and the prints are too cool! We will use different sizes of Gelli® plates with acrylic paints and a variety of stencils, stamps, vegetation, household items, and whatever else we can find to create fun designs on paper and boxes. Bring along an old shirt or apron, any old gift boxes, anything that might make an interesting pattern, and your imagination. The holidays are coming! It’s amazing what you can create. Preregistration is required and costs $50. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.

National Theatre Live, the best of British theatre broadcast to cinemas around the world, presents the screening of “The Madness of King George III”, which was written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights, Alan Bennett. It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behavior is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
