Finding the Bridge Studio:
The Bridge studio is located on the ground floor of the Rivermill Village Apartments, a separate mill building down the hill from the Saxapahaw General Store/gas station and Hawbridge School. Turn into the Rivermill Village Apartments parking lot just before the actual bridge across the Haw River and drive around the back of the building, along the river. Just before the road starts going up the hill, you will see a parking garage on the left. Park anywhere outside, but not in the garage. Walk just beyond the garage to the courtyard. There is a fountain and just to the Left of it is the door to the studio. WELCOME!
