Jeanne W Walking Stick

Walking Stick with Jeanne

June 19 & July 10 - 9am - Noon

Take a hike! Learn to design and create a walking stick that you can take hiking or simply use for playful home decor. We'll use found sticks (bring your own or select from sticks supplied for the class); remove bark (optional); draw and paint a design; and seal. There will be plenty of design motifs to incorporate, and feel free to add your own special elements - names, meaningful words, etc. Have fun at this easy and creative nature-oriented class!

Jeanne Collage 4

Collage with Jeanne

June 26 & August 14 - 9am - Noon

Roll up your sleeves. This is a lot of fun! In this class, you will learn many artful approaches to creating collage. You will make a large floral collage using papers you've printed on a gelli plate, papers you cut from magazines, cards, letters, etc. and images you stamp on papers. Once you glue down your design, you will use dabs of paint and finish it with a sealer to keep it lovely.

Jeanne W Felting 1

Felting with Jeanne

July 24 - 9am - Noon

Whether it's dry felting (as we will do) or wet-felting, you will discover that the properties of wool and manipulation of wool fibers are downright exciting (and relaxing). This class teaches you to needle-felt two wool laundry balls. You'll learn about the types of wool roving to use, the different types of felting needles, and how to create a couple of little masterpieces. You'll also see how this skill can be used to embellish sweaters, vests, jeans, and the like.

Beaded necklace with Phyllis
