Bring any objects that you want to incorporate into your mobile, too! Presented by artist Karole Sharpe. 2 dates to choose from: Sunday, June 19 at 2:00 p.m.
In this class, you'll learn the basics of acrylic canvas painting with step-by-step artist led instruction. No prior painting experience is necessary to create this blowing tree masterpiece. All supplies and instructions included!

Yo-yo quilting is a humble craft -- developed by creative Depression-era homemakers to use up bits of fabric for practical objects -- usually quilts and coverlets. (The top photo is a good example of this kind of quilting.) The product is homey, sensible and, in the right hands, can have a wonderful sense of design and movement.
