Fiber Frolic workshop scheduled for Jan. 28-30

Thursday, January 13, 2011

TERRE HAUTE -- White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence, is offering area residents a chance to take advantage of inclement weather and learn a new craft or uncover some artistic talent.

WVC, located at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, is offering a Fiber Frolic workshop Jan. 28-30.

Beginning level classes of spinning, weaving and felting instruction will be available with instructors Sister Maureen Freeman, John Salamone and Susan Pugh.

Classes will occur simultaneously, so participants must choose one area of concentration for the weekend. No prior experience is needed. Supplies and equipment will be furnished.

Participants should walk away with a finished project.

Cost is $150. Housing at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods will be available. The workshop begins at 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 28, and ends at noon, Sunday, Jan. 30.

The registration deadline is Friday. To register, contact Robyn Morton at rmorton@spsmw.org, or call 1-812-535-2932.

The Sisters of Providence, a congregation of nearly 400 women religious, have their motherhouse at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, located northwest of Terre Haute.
