The North Shore
The most interesting shop on St. John is at Maho Bay Camps (340/776-6226, www.maho.org), right next door to the campground restaurant: At Trash to Treasures Art Center, artists convert discarded glass and fabric into works of art. Many days you can watch a master glassblower at work.
Also at Maho Bay Camps is Maho Bay Clay Works (Maho Bay, 340/776-6226, ext. 226), perhaps St. John’s most fascinating gallery. There are frequent classes and detailed demonstrations at both places. Check out the website for a schedule.
