You may drop off your supplies at the back door of Easton Studio. It's accessed by an alley that adjoins Aurora St. It is the last set of double white doors next to a fenced off empty lot. After you unload, there is a free public parking lot at 331 E. Dover Street. As you drive into Easton from Route 50, watch on your right for two large pink Victorian retail buildings. Directly after the second pink building, on the right, is a small parking lot. If this lot if full, there are free three hour parking spaces on Dover Street in the same block as the school, and also unlimited parking on the surrounding side streets (the nearest are Aurora Street and Locust Lane). If you prefer, you can park in one of Easton's many public metered parking lots. The nearest public lots to the school are: beside the Tidewater Inn (take Dover St. downtown, right on Harrison St., lot on right after Inn); and next to the Talbot Visitor's Center (take Dover St. downtown, left on Harrison St., lot on right mid-block at Glenwood St.). We are not sure if the meters are checked on Saturdays, but we know that parking is free on Sundays.
Feel free to bring a lunch to classes and workshops if you like. There are quite a few great lunch choices in downtown Easton on weekdays and Saturday (just a short two block walk from the school), but not as many on Sunday. Click here for a list of area eateries. We have a large refrigerator, a kitchen sink, microwave, Keurig coffee maker and a comfortable place to eat. Coffee and water are available at the school.
