Glennwood House Scarf Making Day13 September ·
On September 13th, our team had the opportunity to make scarves with 25 of the residents at Glennwood House, an amazing home for independent adults with special needs. See the photos in the slide show below. The scarves - which as you can see came out great - will be auctioned off at the upcoming gala event benefitting Glennwood. Funding for this activity was made possible by the incomparable Danielle Wilson of Sotheby's International Realty, who is a fantastic lady with a big heart and a great laugh. We owe her a debt of gratitude for her dedication and support.
Glennwood House of Laguna Beach is a GORGEOUS 42 room facility that also has a Dining Hall, gym, Sensory Garden, media room, Art Studio and Game area for residents to enjoy. The facility opened in the Summer of 2013 and is geographically close to wonderful Laguna restaurants, down town shopping, walking distance to beach access, the park and recreation sites!
In chatting with the residents, we learned that they come from all over California, and all of them seemed thrilled to call Glennwood their home. We very much look forward to spending more time with this group in the future,

"Gel-Git" is a Turkish phrase meaning "back and forth," and is the name of the basic chevron-like water marbling design formed by pulling the rake, comb or stylus back and forth through the paint.
We hope that this phrase will also describe our relationship with you and the many other folks with whom we have enjoyed sharing this beautiful art form.
Please feel free to contact us at any time with your photos, ideas, questions, event inquiries, or custom orders.
Star McCain and Philip Greenwood took a leap of faith, abandoning lucrative professional careers to follow their dream of working together to share the joy and beauty of water marbling on silk with others.
