Painted Terra Cotta Pots Class, June, 2021
Pinecone Bird Feeders, Wed. Jan. 26:  This has become a staple class for the month of January for the last 5 years.  Fun and easy, come and stuff some pinecones with peanut butter then cover them with birdseed.  String a few together, then hang in a tree for your feathered friends to enjoy!  Your pinecones can be refilled as needed.  This is a relaxing and enjoyable class. 

Learning Through Documentaries, Thurs. Jan. 27:  This month’s documentary is entitled  “The Healthcare Divide.”  The description of this 1-hour program, put out by FRONTLINE and NPR, reads: “FRONTLINE and NPR investigate the growing inequities in American healthcare exposed by COVID-19. The documentary examines how pressure to increase profits and uneven government support is widening the divide between rich and poor hospitals, endangering care for the most needy.”
The program will be followed by a period of interactive conversation. 

Scrabble, Wed. FEB. 2:  Come and join me for this fun workout for the brain!  Scrabble is a great way to hone your strategy skills and keep your mind sharp.  Teams will be formed based on the number of participants present. 

Card Making, Thurs. FEB 2:  In this class, we’ll be stocking up on Birthday cards.  The card will be a pre-designed creation that you will color and put together.  This design was created by one of my regular class attendees, Sherry.  I loved it so much, I asked her permission to offer it in class.  Thanks for the idea, Sherry!

Trivia With Friends, Wed. Feb. 9th:  Come exercise your brain and sharpen your memory by taking part in this fun group.  This activity is always engaging and entertaining, as everyone in attendance offers stories and interesting facts pertaining to the trivia questions.  You will have a great time, while also learning some interesting new things!

Danish Hearts, Thurs. Feb. 10th:  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, come and create these fabulous woven Danish hearts.  They open in the middle so you can place a few chocolate treats inside if you wish.  They can also be tucked inside of a greeting card, or used as a unique Valentines Day card! 

Origami Bow, Wed. Feb. 16th:  What a lovely way to custom-decorate a gift!  This bow is not actually “origami” in the strictest sense of the word, but rather “kirigami.”  The difference between the two is that origami solely involves folding and nothing else – no cutting, gluing, or marking. Kirigami on the other hand, involves folding and cutting; glue is allowed too. This model is fairly easy to complete, and comes out looking quite nice. 

Stretch Bracelets, Thurs. Feb. 17th:  Come and design your own piece of bling!  We will use stretch cord to string our beads on;  I have tons of really nice beads here in the craft room!  These bracelets also make great gifts for your jewelry-loving family or friends.  $3.00 each.

Weaving 101, Wed. Feb. 23rd:  In this class we will weave a piece that is the perfect size for a mug coaster; you could also use it as a mini wall hanging.  Using a cardboard loom and various yarn colors, I’ll show you how to create your project.  This is sure to be a fun class!  $2.00 for the class.

Learning Through Documentaries, Thurs. Feb. 24th:  This month’s documentary is entitled  “Cracking The Koala Code.”  The description of this 1-hour program, put out by NATURE, reads: “From the miracle of marsupial birth to tender moments of discovery between mother and newborn joey, encounters with threatening forest creatures, battles between rival males and the complex chorus of bellows and grunts that have become so important to science — join leading scientists as they unravel just what a forest needs to support a healthy population of koalas by listening to these marsupials.” 
The program will be followed by a period of interactive conversation. 

Scrabble, Wed MAR. 2nd:  Come and join me for this fun workout for the brain!  Scrabble is a great way to hone your strategy skills and keep your mind sharp.  Teams will be formed based on the number of participants present. 

Card Making, Thurs. MAR. 3rd:
  This will be an open-forum class where I will bring out an assortment of stamps, different colored inks, paper punches, colored pencils and markers, and other goodies  for you to work with to.  We always have a great time in the card making classes, as everyone shares their knowledge and ideas!  Come on in and create your own original greeting cards!
