CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Open Doors, a weekend-long open house showcasing local businesses and artists in the fall, is now being held in the springtime, too.

Visitors are welcome this weekend to see participating studios, farms and shops. They can go on a self-guided tour, using an interactive map.

Spring NH Open Doors is managed by the League of NH Craftsmen, with support from the state of New Hampshire, as well as promotional assistance from other New Hampshire art, craft and business organizations. The League also manages a Fall NH Open Doors event that is held in early November.

Adele Sanborn is demonstrating bookmaking and paste paper at her studio at the TWIGGS Gallery at Cornerstone Design in Boscawen.

“People sometimes feel like they are bothering an artist or craftsperson by going into their studio,” she said. “New Hampshire Open Doors eliminates the awkwardness - we want people to come in and see how we work. I like to involve people in some hands-on projects so that they can experience and appreciate what goes into making fine craft.”
