Groundhog Paper Bag Puppet
1pm to 3pm
Instructor: Pamela Weichmann

Join us in celebration of Groundhog day! Young artists will use paper bags as the base of their puppets. Construction paper, markers and glitter will be used to create unique groundhogs. The first official Groundhog Day Celebration took place on February 2, 1887, in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. The yearly festival still takes place in Punxsutawney. The groundhog who pops out of his hole each year has been named Punxsutawney Phil. What will you name your groundhog puppet?

February 3rd,Sunday
Paper Quilling: Valentine’s Hearts
1pm to 3pm
Instructor:  Julie Tippie

Create a unique valentine to send to that special someone while learning the centuries old technique of paper quilling. Quilling is the art of coiling and shaping of narrow strips of paper to create a decorative design. The history of quilling dates back to the Renaissance during which nuns and monks would use the scrap paper from bookmaking to make decorative filigree that mimicked the ironwork of the day. Quilling is becoming increasing popular in American contemporary craft and is used to decorate invitations and birthing announcements. In both America and Europe, quelling can be found in art galleries. Suggested for older kids and teens.

Wildflower Seed Bombs
1pm to 3pm
Instructor:
Pamela Weichmann

Location:
Stained Glass Studio

Get ready for Spring and get ready to guerilla garden! Seed bombs originated in Japan and were called Tsuchi Dango, meaning earth dumpling. Seed bombs are a great way to plant seeds in a hard to reach place or a place where there isn’t time to dig up the soil, such as roadsides, and urban areas. In New York City in the 1970’s a group called the ‘Green Guerrillas’ threw seed bombs in abandoned lots and became the founders of community ‘Guerrilla Gardens’, which brought nature and beauty to previously unused, and run down lots. Suggested for kids, teens and adults.
